Apologies for the somewhat late notice - but we've got an exciting meeting scheduled for March 28th! We've got a hands-on workshop led by Ryan Preston of Depth Security.
Title: Getting Started in Real-World Hacking
Overview: In this workshop, you will be introduced to bug bounties, a command-line xss scanner, and the ease of finding cross-site scripting bugs in websites.

You will need to bring a laptop! In order to make things go more smoothly, it's recommended that you get the following prerequisites set up:
  • A laptop with python2, preferably running Kali or a Kali-VM. (Any OS with a unix shell environment will work, though.)
  • Software:
  • Python (2)
  • git
  • pip
  • xsscrapy
  • **May need additional libraries depending on OS: libxml2, libxslt, zlib, libffi, openssl (sometimes libssl-dev)
To Install on a default VM-image of Kali Rolling
  1. Change to a directory you would like the tool saved in. I use /opt/
    $ cd /opt/
  2. Clone the git repo$ git clone
  3. Jump into the repo and, using pip, install the other requirements.$ cd xsscrapy$ pip install –r requirements.txt
Ryan is the Security Assessments Team Lead at Depth Security. Interests include XSS, Bug Bounties, CTF’s, and extreme things.
