Reversing with Radare

Following the introduction to reverse engineering in our Give It A Go session, we'll be delving deeper into the subject using the open source tool Radare2. This session will teach vital knowledge about how a computer works that will be helpful in many areas outside cyber security, and go into more detail about how to reverse engineer malware! Since this session will be more advanced, we recommend you've already had a look at the crypto and reversing sessions from our Give It A Go: Hope to see you there!

We will be holding an Extraordinary General Meeting (EGM). This will be to fill in positions which we have open, and it is extraordinary because it is not at the Annual General Meeting which is where committee members are normally elected! Even if you don't want to nominate yourself, it's always great to properly exercise democracy with a large sample size, so come on down to vote anyway. It won't take a moment of your time and really helps form the future of the society! πŸ‘πŸ‘ We currently have three unfilled committee positions. If you would like to run for a position (and are eligible to run) please let us know! Please also let us know if you want more information on the roles. Roles: Outreach Officer: Must not be a computer science student. Responsible for promoting the society to students from a wide range of backgrounds, and finding ways to improve diversity of the society. Postgraduate Officer: Must be a postgraduate student, ideally on the Cyber Security masters course. Represents this group of students to help ensure our activities fit with postgraduate timetables, and are attractive and useful to this group of students. Officer Without Portfolio: This position has no prerequisites, as the name suggests. The role of the officer would be to attend meetings, help make decisions, and help wherever they can with events! These is no specific responsibility, but more a general one to help out with society business. Feel like your days are too full? We allow running in pairs!! If you and a friend fancy teaming up and splitting the work load, do get in touch! πŸ‘«πŸ€
