Greetings from Virus Bulletin 2004 Posted by Gergo @ 23:46 GMT

Katrin, Mikko, Ero and Myself have attended this year's Virus Bulletin conference in Chicago. Virus Bulletin is the largest antivirus conference which attracts some hundred delegates from antivirus companies and other organizations interested in the computer virus problem.

VB2004 had some good talks on broad range of topics. In the techie track quite a few talks circled around the topic of using virtual machines and virtualisation for different purposes. In the corporate track some other taks covered topics like the true cost of computer viruses and criminal aspects of virus writing. This year's conference was the first to include a spam-focused track as well.

The conference has now come to an end and Chicago is waiting to be explored before we head home...
