The Manitoba UNIX User Group (MUUG) will be holding its next monthly
meeting on Tuesday, November 14.  The meeting topic for this month is
as follows:

   Vulnerability Scanning

   Do you want to know what the `Bad Guys' can find out about your
   machine? There is no better way to find out what they can see than to
   use the same tools they use. This month, MUUG member Shawn Wallbridge
   will cover the basics of Vulnerability Scanning using Nmap, Nessus,
   Whisker and Hping. With the proliferation of High-Speed, always-on
   Internet connections, security is becoming more of a concern for the
   average home user.

The group holds its general meetings at 7:30pm on the second Tuesday of
every month from September to June.  (There are no meetings in July and
August.) Meetings are open to the general public; you don't have to be a
MUUG member to attend.

   Please note our meeting location:  IBM Canada's offices in the TD
   Centre, at the corner of Portage and Main. We gather in the lobby on
   the main floor - please try to be there by about 7:15pm. Steve Moffat
   will then take us up to the meeting room just before the meeting
   starts at 7:30. Don't be late, or you may not get in.

   Parking is available either in the parkade behind the TD building,
   off Albert Street, or in the ground level lot just north of the TD
   building. Entrance to the lot is from Albert Street, behind the
   parkade. Either way, parking is a $1.25 flat rate for the evening.
   You purchase your ticket from a dispenser, so make sure you've got
   exact change - a loonie and a quarter, or 5 quarters.
