Nessus Vulnerability Scanner

Hey everyone at our next meeting I will be doing a brief presentation and demo on the Nessus vulnerability scanner.

This is some of the stuff I plan to cover.

  • What is a vulnerability scanner.
  • why you should use it over another of the many vulnerability scanner.
  • Is it worth its price tag.

Hope to see you guys at the next KLUG meeting!

Scott Mischke has arranged for a presentation by the Director of Information Security at MPI Research, Randy Slain, on security risk assessment “best practices”, especially as a precursor to qualification in the pharmaceutical industry;  common challenges they face with security. identifying vulnerabilities and conducting due diligence audits to mitigate risks.

The presentation will begin at 6:00 P.M.  All KLUG members are invited to attend this informative an relevant topic.

FLOSS Presentation

Scot Henderson made another great presentation at our weekly KLUG meeting.  The topic, FLOSS or Free Libre Open Source software was very interesting and informative.  We learned the difference between Free and non-free software in the GNU/Linux world.  Scot introduced us to vrms (virtual Richard M Stallman); https://scottlinux.com/2014/02/19/find-non-free-software-installed-on-your-debian-machine/ … an apt that will detect any non-free software on a Debian system.  Scot also demonstrated a little C programming using the editor, VIM – http://www.vim.org/
