In the security industry, we're used to people saying sorry: "sorry we chose a default password of 12345678"; "sorry we didn't look after your personal data better"; "sorry we didn't discover this huge vulnerability earlier"; and so on.
In that context, my reason for apologising is far more mundane. There were some great papers and presentations given at our VB2014 conference in Seattle that we simply haven't yet got around to publishing.
But better late than never: the following are the remaining papers and presentations. Enjoy!
(If you like what you see here, and are interested in presenting your own research at the upcoming Virus Bulletin conference (VB2016), in Denver 5-7 October 2016, why not submit a proposal? The call for papers is now open.)
