I'm signed up and attending the Hacker Techniques, Exploits & Incident Handling next week at Virginia Tech (http://www.conted.vt.edu/isect/). Should be fun.

Ed Skoudis, a SANS handler, will be the instructor. I'm looking forward to it. I have been gearing up for it for a couple weeks now. I have a new firewall, tools, VMWare (with a Fedora 4 VM), and a dual-boot (XP and Fedora 4) set up on the laptop. I'll be making a restore image of the system to an external drive so I should be able to take whatever is thrown at me.

I'll post an after-action report. Should be fun.

Oh, yeah, if any of y'all are in the Blacksburg, VA area, PM me and we might be able to meet for a brew.
