Final Exam Date

Saturday, May 21st, 2005

Right you are — the date on the syllabus page was wrong, but the outline was correct. The final exam is definitely next Friday, and I’ve updated the pages to match.

Class Cancelled

Friday, May 20th, 2005

Well… actually, you probably knew that. I was, like some of the rest of you folks, stuck in traffic on the 57. Incident Response and Forensics will, of course, not be covered in the Final Exam. If you haven’t turned in Assignment 8, you may do so on the day of the final.

Symantec Worm Simulator

Wednesday, May 11th, 2005

Symantec has released a Worm Simulator. I can’t tell whether this is just a sales tool (”Oooh, look at the scary worm! Buy stuff from us or the worm will get you!”) or if it could be useful as a research tool.

If you’re running Windows, download it and let me know.

Office Hour Change

Monday, May 9th, 2005

My office hours on Wednesday, 5/11 will be cut short by an hour — 2:00-3:00pm instead of 2:00-4:00pm. I will hold additional office hours on 5/12 from 3:00-4:00pm in addition to regularly scheduled office hours 5:15-7:00pm and on 5/13 from 5:00-7:00pm instead of 6:00-7:00pm. As always, you are also welcome to make an appointment.

PLY Format

Monday, May 9th, 2005

If you haven’t started writing the code to read object files, I recommend PLY format. I hadn’t noticed it, but the page I linked to already includes code to read PLY files. The PLY page at Georgia Tech also has code to convert OBJ files to PLY format.
