Speaker: Claudiu Popa, CEO of Informatica Corp. Topic: "The Aftermath of Heartbleed" Shortly after Heartbleed was announced, Claudiu launched http://www.heartbleed.ca/ as a single source for information and updates. Claudiu will do a talk on the aftermath of Heartbleed and look at the following key topics: - are companies still vulnerable today (3 weeks later) - exploits: what they looked like / what they will look like - the evidence for government awareness/exploitation He will also discuss how could an attacker could escalate privileges and hijack a server, apply OpenSSL patches and continuing to control it long after the system was deemed to be safe.

This talk will be about the challenges in sustaining the compliance effort and the strategy to grow the list of compliant merchants. The talk will also discuss one of the tactical approach which uses the central payment gateway to streamline payment processes and reduce the merchant's scope and responsibility in achieving compliance.

An informal gathering of people in Toronto interested in Unix and related topics
Introduction

Unix Unanimous is an informal gathering of people in Toronto interested in Unix and related topics. There are no fees or membership requirements, and the meeting is open to all. Participants typically include Unix professionals, students, and hobbyists. 

Meetings are held every second Wednesday. See the web site for location of the next meeting. Afterwards we head to a local restaurant, Real Thailand, and the discussion continues there.
