7:00PM - 8:00PM: Pre-show: It's not FINished: The Evolving Maturity in Ransomware Operations  | Mitchell Clarke, Tom Hall, Joe Slowik (Black Hat Webcast Series)

Our PRE-SHOW will feature a relevant talk from the Black Hat Webinar series! Synopsis from their description below:

Ransom demands are becoming larger, attackers smarter, and intrusions longer. We will be sharing tradecraft we've seen ransomware threat actors employ across Europe in 2020. Not only are intrusion tactics improving, but attackers are also transitioning and developing sleek ransomware-as-a-service platforms. Threat actors are professionalising and streamlining their platforms. These platforms are being used by threat actors to generate malware, to communicate and negotiate with victims, and in some cases, for payment processing and decryption utility delivery.

8:00PM - 8:30PM: Talk: Detecting At-Risk Software Infrastructure  | Kaylea Champion

Software serves as infrastructure, and it can suffer from a lack of maintenance. We want to understand how to detect this kind of risk in Free/Libre Open Source Software infrastructure before major failures occur.

8:30PM - 9:00PM: Workshop: The Joycon Symphonic Orchestra  | sirocyl

In this talk DCG 201 Member sirocyl will look at a program that allows Nintendo Switch Joy-Cons to play .midi files. This will be followed by a mini-jam session that might extend to the hang out portion of the meet up!

9:00PM - 10:00PM: Talk: npm's Gone Wild: The undefined Edition (CVE-2021-28918)  | SickCodes, John Hacking, Kaoudis, Koroeskohr, Tensor_Bodega

How we copped a decade old 0-day, while fixing another one. Randomly assembled global team of then strangers. The power of dropping research on a Sunday.
