2004.02.16 Meeting Notes


  • Parts of Microsoft Windows NT and 2000 source code was leaked recently (apparently from versions circa summer 2000)
  • The first exploit based on the leaked code has hit the Internet. A signed vs. unsigned integer discrepency can cause a buffer underrun in Internet Explorer's BMP image loading code, allowing attacker's code to run.
  • Bill Kendrick speaks at BALUG in San Francisco tomorrow. Zaurus demo.
  • RoseLUG meets next Monday to talk about Knoppix.

Project Reports

  • Demo - The next hands-on Linux demo will be on Saturday, February 28th from 3pm to 6pm at the Davis Food Co-Op. No updates to the recently-purchased new demo machine.

  • Installfests - 8 people signed up for this month's IF. One walk-in arrived as well. For the most part it went okay. One person had SATA drives and apparently forgot to note it in their RSVP, so we had trouble getting Debian on it. It sounds like Fedora worked.

  • LERT - No news.

  • Library - No news.

Other Business

  • Open Source presentation for Sac. State MISA - Edward Elliott will be speaking at March 10th's Sacramento State Management Information Systems Association (SacMISA) meeting.

  • Whole Earth Festival - WEF takes place at UC Davis on May 7th-9th. LUGOD has been invited to attend once again. It costs about $50 for the booth. We have yet to respond; waiting to see whether LUGOD members are interested in volunteering.

  • Government Technology Conference - GTC takes place at the Sacramento Convention Center on May 10th-14th. LUGOD had a booth last year, and would like to attend again this year, if possible. Unfortunately, booths are expensive, and the way we got it last year was to wait until they had space due to another group dropping out. We'll continue to check back with GTC closer to the event to see if they get space this year, too.

  • Financial Report - $26.50 in voluntary dues were collected.


  • Tim Stapko and Gene Fodor of Z-World, Inc. came to LUGOD to talk about Secure Socket Layer, and OpenSSL.
