More VB Conference papers and videos published

Posted by   Virus Bulletin on   Jan 29, 2016

11 papers and 9 videos added to our website.

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.

Sorry.
