Last-minute papers announced for VB2008

Posted by   Virus Bulletin on   Sep 16, 2008

Schedule for hot-topic technical 'turbo' talks announced.

VB has unveiled the schedule for a series of up-to-the-minute technical presentations at the VB2008 conference which takes place 1-3 October in Ottawa, Canada.

The eight 'last-minute' presentations include material on today's hottest topics, with the papers being selected just days prior to the start of the conference, to avoid the deadline constraints associated with traditional conference papers.

This year's last-minute presentations include papers on anti-malware testing, in-the-cloud security, South American banking trojan trends, rogueware and security of the iPhone.

The full schedule and abstracts for the presentations is here.
