Greetings Perl Mongers,

Next weekend the Portland OWASP chapter is holding an experimental hacking
competition.  Free/Libre Open Source Software Hacking (FLOSSHack[1]) events are
designed to bring together individuals interested in learning more about
application security with open source projects in need of low cost or pro bono
security auditing. FLOSSHack provides a friendly, but mildly competitive,
workshop environment in which participants learn about and search for
vulnerabilities in selected software.

The first FLOSSHack will be held on Sunday, July 1st from noon-4pm at Free
Geek[2] and will focus on the Ushahidi platform[3].  Participation is open to
the public. Participants are welcome to join in person or remotely and everyone
is invited to begin searching for security vulnerabilities in the target
software at any time.  That's right, the bug hunt has already begun!  More
information can be found here:

Hope to see you there,

PS- For future updates on this and other local OWASP events, please join our
chapter mailing list (since I don't plan on annoying members of this list for
every event):
