Just discovered this; in my own backyard!

I'm so shocked that there are other people actually interested in this sort of practical thing around Oxford that I figured I'd post it here as well, in case some other locals are lurking on my favourite forums...

It looks like a great opportunity for you to teach them some "real" skills.

The innocent have nothing to fear, right?

that entirely depends on your definition of 'innocent'
and maybe its a secret group that want to kill reverse engineers, they'll meet u in the pub, seduce you with alcohol.. then the beer goggles kick in...
actually, are you still a student? if so, the last half you're probably used to by now ;p

yea go ahead and tell us how was the meeting

Well, no kidnapping or arrests, but there was some alcohol

Only four of us turned up in the end, but a decent mix so we had some good chats - couple of pentesters, a lecturer, and me. One of them is even a recent newbie on the board, but I won't out him

It's going to become a regular thing apparently, so we might even end up doing some small projects in the evenings. Apparently some other people expressed interest, so we should get a few more in future weeks once the students roll back in. Frankly any opportunity to combine reversing and beer is a welcome one for me

evlncrn8: Haven't been a student myself for a while now; working on my overly ambitious reversing tool (more about that in a while...) full-time at the moment. Would like to go back in a few years though...
