Greetings from snowy Amsterdam, where the 2006 Europe Black Hat Briefings and Trainings are taking place.
The conference just started earlier today and it’s covered a wide range of topics so far, from the social aspects and impacts of vulnerabilities to Halvar Flake’s deeply technical exploitation techniques of uninitialized local variables.
As an interesting observation, I’m seeing a larger number of Macs here than at any other conference I’ve been so far. I’m not sure if this is a sign that the “blackhats” are becoming more interested into Macs or if it’s just that Macs are becoming popular. No sign of Leap or Inqtana infections so far, though.
Will keep you updated.
