Welcome to the July 2021 DCG 201 Meet Up!

Welp…better late that never?

Yes, we know there was no June meet up and we are announcing this one SUPER late. Sadly hacking does not exist in a vaccum and the calamity outside of computers in a post-vaxx world has impacted us over the past weeks.

But we have not been shut down by the FBI or abducted by ClownSec, we at DCG 201 have been plotting out how the rest of the year and into 2022 will go! New logo! New live stream shows! New in person meet ups outside of meetings! New conventions and yes, DEF CON 29 is coming!

Plus, big suprises you don’t want to miss LIVE!

So saddle up as we use July to take a small but patriotic look into the goving on of ‘guberment biz as we open DCG 201 to a whole new world!

See you at our last purely online show!

PRE SHOW :: All-Army Cyberstakes :: XXE Injection :..>All-Army CyberStakes is the premier Department of Defense individual, computer security, skills competition. The competition tests a diverse array of skills including forensics, cryptography, binary exploitation, reverse engineering, and web-based exploitation. In this video, world renown cybersecurity expert John Hammond (no not related to the Jurassic Park guy) will show off one of last year’s challenges solving it using a XML external entity (XXE) injection attack.

:..>Bio: Hi! My name is John. I’m just a guy that likes computers, and loves to show off cool things. So if you are into programming, computer security, or any tech on a keyboard, check out some of my YouTube videos and feel free to get engaged. I am super thankful for all of your support and helping the channel keep growing!

SkyPirate Interview :..>Bio: Marcus Singletary aka SkyPirateActual (https://instagram.com/SkyPirateActual) is currently a 11B (Infantry Squad Leader) stationed out of Ft. Bragg, NC. He has been deployed to Iraq twice in the last 6 years. His interest in physical security stemmed from lockpicking, bypassing as a hobby and breaching on the job; the correlation between the two sparked the interest and the subsequent dive into the world of physical security

Counting To TENS aka When The US Department of Defence Tries To Make Tails OS :..>Trusted End Node Security (TENS), previously called Lightweight Portable Security (LPS), is a Linux-based live CD produced by the United States of America’s Department of Defence with a goal of allowing users to work on a computer without the risk of exposing their credentials and private data to malware, key loggers and other Internet-era ills. It includes a minimal set of applications and utilities, such as the Firefox web browser or an encryption wizard for encrypting and decrypting personal files. Our Co-Founder will attempt to run this discontinued operating system in a virtual machine and explore its weird quirks.

:.>Bio: A Co-Founder of DCG 201, an open group for hacker workshop projects in North East New Jersey, Sidepocket is constantly wanting to help people to get better at whatever they want to do and learn. He also has a history with NYC 2600, Radio Statler at Hackers on Planet Earth, Phone Losers of America, Museum of Urban Reclaim Spaces and The Yes Men.

AMONG US During our stream, we will be playing the hit game Among Us with the DEF CON audience! Watch the stream to find out how to join.

Steam: https://store.steampowered.com/app/945360/Among_Us/ iOS: https://apps.apple.com/us/app/among-us/id1351168404 Android: https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.innersloth.spacemafia&hl=en_US&gl=US

The game takes place in a space-themed setting, in which players each take on one of two roles, most being Crewmates, and a predetermined number being Impostors. The goal of the Crewmates is to identify the Impostors, eliminate them, and complete tasks around the map; the Impostors’ goal is to covertly sabotage and kill the Crewmates before they complete all of their tasks. Players suspected to be Impostors may be eliminated via a plurality vote, which any player may initiate by calling an emergency meeting (except during a crisis) or reporting a dead body. Crewmates win if all Impostors are eliminated or all tasks are completed whereas Impostors win if there is an equal number of Impostors and Crewmates, or if a critical sabotage goes unresolved.
