Summer in Fort Collins

Good news everybody NOCO2600 is back in the 2600 magazine! It looks like the Starbucks (4218 College Ave. 7 pm) is the best place to meet for the time. If we are not at the big table come find us on the patio enjoying these long summer evenings. Pull yourself away from your summer projects for a night and come hang out with us, and talk computing and the end of society as we know it…..

We are not meeting at Dazbog for the near future. We are meeting via teleconferencing. No user account required, just a browser or phone.
I’ll be posting a link here for the June 2600 meeting here about an hour before the meeting. We’ll be using https://meet.jit.si/

NOCO 2600 in the new year

This coming weekend is a event called “March for Science”. In an era that plays fast and loose with facts, and has an active agenda to bury evidence, someone needs to stand up for the sciences. Take a look at the link below.
Maybe I’ll see you there!

Turnout has been great at all of the meetings this year. Many new faces. The new format for the meetings has worked out well. There may be a great many IT professionals in the group, but anyone is welcome. We encourage open minds, and the questioning of security and privacy. Get involved!

Don’t forget DC970 will have a Capture the Flag (CTF) event this Thursday night. https://dc970.org/2017/04/ctf-night/

We’re changing locations!

After three years in the Loveland (actually Johnstown) Starbucks, we’ve decided to make a change.

Starting next month, we’ll be meeting in a south Fort Collins DazBog coffee house instead (link to address to follow).

Be sure to tell the other members of the change when your bump into them around town.

See you there!

Russian Hackers disguise Kelihos bot as Anti-Government Software

Russian Hackers are spreading the Kelihos Trojan leading victims into believing that it is a software to hit Western Governments.

Kelihos botnet is still active and exploited by the cybercrime ecosystem to monetize its effort as discovered by security experts at Bitdefender. Cyber criminals have a single purpose, to earn money by any means, for this reason it is not surprising that Russian hackers are riding the interest on the conflict in Ukraine to serve malware via links found in spam emails purporting to support the Russian cause.
