October Meeting: Ransomware
Date: October 6, 2016 at 7 p.m.
Location: Algonquin College (Woodroffe Campus), room B185
Tonight we will have one presentation with the possibility of a second one. Patrick Malcolm will be giving a talk on ransomware. Given the interest and questions from the last talk, we are only scheduling one presentation this time.
There will be a one hour pre-meeting item from 18:00 to 19:00 for people who are new to Linux, have general questions, or wish to help out with people who are just getting started.
After Meeting Social:
After the meeting, there will be a social event at one of the nearby pubs or restaurants. A short discussion and vote as to location will be taken then.
After the main talk and possibly the BoF, there will be the opportunity for a GPG key signing. This is a monthly offering, just look for Scott after the talk and we can go from there. Bring some kind of photo ID and some keyslips if you expect people to sign your key.If you need some method of creating pages of keyslips, there is an online slip generator available.
