I just don't understand... how do we compete with "3 year old discovers corpse at birthday party"?? :P

82 diggs thus far... only a few hours remaining...

Re: ChicagoCon 2007

Honestly, I thought 85 would be the number to reach, but apparently I'm wrong.

We need a big push right here at the end. We're close. I can taste it!!

Thanks everyone,

Re: ChicagoCon 2007

All I can say is Wow!. We had 105 diggs before the end of the first 24 hours and didn't make the front page.  :'(

Oh well. Sh!7 happens and you move on with life.

Thanks to everyone for the Herculean effort,

Re: ChicagoCon 2007

OK... let's end this day on a good note.

We have worked out a deal with the guys from Offensive Security and BackTrack fame to not only have an EH-Net version of BT2 that will be distributed at ChicagoCon 2007, but it will also be the only version (before BT3 - no ETA) to have Metasploit 3, bug fixes, more wireless driver support, more support for wireless cards going into monitor mode, several other of the base tools will be updated, and... drum roll please!!

Instead of an ISO, we will be making it into a VMware Virtual Appliance. That way you can use it for your practice labs very easily but also be able to save your settings and any other files you desire.  8)

Thanks Muts!!

Wow, that's awesome!

What ever happened with the wallpaper thing? Did anyone submit any ideas/examples?

Re: ChicagoCon 2007

Wow! That's great to hear EH-Net will have their own version of BackTrack.  Since I cannot get down to Chicago, will this be available for us to d/l?

Re: ChicagoCon 2007

My apologies to the 2 - 3 people who submitted backgrounds, but (as you can tell from the small numbers), we didn't have much to go on and none of them really grabbed us as being unique or pushed the brand.

As for DLing, we will make this available to all. Just not sure how we're going to go about it yet.

Re: ChicagoCon 2007

Don, if bandwidth issues come up as a problem for hosting (not sure what type of plan you have), you may want to check out Globat as they offer 1TB space and bandwidth for about $7 or $8 per month.

Re: ChicagoCon 2007

I'm a tad new to this whole thing, but I've been gnawing at your forums for a while now learning.  One question I had, has anyone found an ISO distro of BackTrack that includes Nessus?  I use BackTrack a lot at work, and at home as well.. and have always found that one of the bigger limitations.  Like you all, I am interested in security testing... and it just seems odd to me that they wouldn't include such a useful tool.  Especially since... even Knoppix has it.  Any ideas in that regard?  Sorry to sidetrack the thread there don.
