It is a great show. If you are here, you should come out to the booth and visit us. Today is the day we give away the motorcycle. Enough plugging us, now on to the show…..

Lots of interesting people, sessions and exhibits at the show. As some people say, “So much to do, so little time.” My three favorite sessions have been:

1) Q&A: Malware
2) Understanding and Fighting Malware: Viruses, Spyware and Rootkits
3) Anatomy of a Network Hack: How to Get Your Network Hacked in 10 Easy Steps.

All three of them were packed, SRO. Just another indication of how important this area has become.

Mark Russinovich was involved in the first two sessions listed above. Many of you may know him from his free tools Filemon, Regmon, etc. I was very impressed with his preparation and knowledge of the issues everyone faces when dealing with spyware. His presentation on the topics of buffer overflow attacks and rootkits was especially interesting. It is worth a look, and as of this morning, it was online for free download.

Well, back to the show.
