Glitch in the Marix

This Friday July 5th at 2600 we will demonstrate how to preform hardware glitching attacks.  Glitching attacks have become very popular in the game console and mobile phone scene.  We will discuss clock and power glitching concepts and demonstrate clock glitching attacks on some ExploitMe sketches designed for arduino boards.

This is a standard 2600 meeting: First Friday of the month starting at 7pm.  This event is open to the public.

Urban Survival: Zombie Outbreak Cincinnati

September 25th, 2012 2 comments

Is it better to be unprepared for the expected, or prepared for the unexpected? As cities around the world brace for the end of times, perhaps they should just be making plans. Urban survival is as much about knowing your terrain as it is knowing your enemy. Where will you run when hordes of the undead attack? How will you communicate when smart phones become as dead as your antagonist? More importantly, what IS Cincinnati chili made of exactly, and is it enough to help sustain life?


All of these questions and more will be address in Urban Survival: Zombie Outbreak Cincinnati, where we explore the design of a city with extreme prejudice.

When: Oct. 9th 7:30pm

Where: Hive13 (2929 SpringGrove Ave)

Speaker: Giacomo Ciminello

Bitcoin Lazer Payments

June 14th, 2012 1 comment

Do to yet another members recent issue with paypal we have enabled bitcoin payments.  Now once you login to lazer.hive13.org you have an option to pay through Mt. Gox with bitcoin.  This works similar to the paypal button but the prices are dynamically set to equal the $30/hr charge we use for paypal.  After a payment it may take a while for the laser minutes to show up, at least until we can have the callbacks fully tested.

With paypal locking accounts and Dwolla’s new crazy terms of service, we would love to offer bitcoin for membership subscriptions as well but unfortunately I don’t believe there is any good way to do this without paying an escrow upfront.  Until then we will use the laser site as our first official testbed.

Cool new power

June 14th, 2012 No comments

We upgraded our electrical system in the hive now so we can run all of our tools without blowing a fuse!  While we were at it we ran dedicated lines to each of the AC units… all 6 brand new AC Units!!!  That’s right, this summer the Hive will actually be a nice area to work instead of a sweat box.

Our electrician was fantastic and if you are ever looking for a team to quickly do an amazing job and not gouge you, then please hit up our friend Marcus:

International Day Against DRM — May 4, 2012

April 27th, 2012 No comments

On May 4th Hive13 together with 2600 will take part in International Day Against DRM.  On May 4th you are encouraged to spread word about the harms of DRM.  On Friday we will discuss how harmful DRM is as well as give demonstrations on how to liberate some of your digital goods from the DRM shackles.  We plan to focus primarily on ebooks just to keep the demos reasonably small.  If you have any experience with removing certain types of ebook protections please bring any tools or techniques with you for open discussion.  At this time we already have some volunteers that will demonstrate the remove of DRM for Adobe’s DRM plus I personally have a collection of scripts for: Mobipocket (.prc/.mobi), Kindle Mobipocket (.azw), Kindle Topaz (.tpz/.azw1), Kindle Print Replica (.azw4), Adobe ePub (.epub), Adobe PDF (.pdf), B&N ePub (.epub), B&N/Fictionwise eReader (.pdb).

Cinci 2600 starts at 7pm on May 4th

Free and open to the public!

More info: Day against DRM

If you want to volunteer for demos you can use the mailing list or our g+ page.
