By my count, there were 12 people at the meeting last night. Not nearly a record, but the most we've seen at one meeting in quite a few months. I think there were three first-timers, too. It was great meeting you and we look forward to crossing paths again. As always, there were many good discussions on everything from encryption, steganography and programming to economics and geology.
There are many places to find live samples of malware. I was using Malware Domain List. Use common sense, here. I can't stress enough that you should know what you are doing if you use any information on this page. I'd suggest using a virtual machine, the NoScript (or similar) plugin and/or a non-Windows operating system. Even still: no guarantees. Play safe, kids!
Our next meeting will be on January 6th, and we may have a post-meeting chili supper at Chez ax0n, if I can get the misses to sign off on it.
