VB2012 last-minute papers announced

Posted by   Virus Bulletin on   Sep 12, 2012

Hot topics to be covered at VB conference in Dallas.

For the last six years, VB has set aside a section of the VB conference for 'last-minute' papers, the idea being that researchers submit proposals for these presentations very close to the conference itself, thus enabling them to cover topics that are as up-to-the-minute as possible.

The programme of last-minute papers for VB2012 in Dallas has just been announced (the abstracts themselves having only been submitted two weeks ago) and we're pleased with what we have to offer - with topics ranging from the real costs of cybercrime, to ransomware, new banking trojans, cleaning up infected domains, industrial espionage in Latin America, and investigations of Russian malware authors:

We hope you'll agree that the selection of last-minute papers both complement and enhance the rest of the conference programme - the full schedule can be found here.

VB2012 runs from 26 to 28 September in Dallas, TX, USA.

Registration is still open, so why not join us for what promises to be an exciting event!
