Lots of upcoming meetings planned and set.

Blacklistd, Christos Zoulas
18:45, Stone Creek Bar & Lounge
140 E 27th St


Today's systems expose multiple network daemons and are constantly
attacked by a fleet of zombie bots or determined attackers. Scanning
logs to determine if an attack is in place in order to modify a firewall
to block an attack is an ad-hoc inelegant solution. Blacklistd is a
daemon and a library interface that attempts to correct this problem.
