We had a very strong showing last week at VB2013, a major malware research conference, in which SophosLabs researchers presented five papers (with another one in reserve!).
One of our security gurus, Chet Wisniewski, provided some great coverage from the event at our Naked Security blog.
Chet not only blogged from the event; he also interviewed our presenters for his Chat Chat podcast. The three-part podcast episode, along with text summaries, can be found here:
- Part 1: Zero Access, vulnerability disclosure and the evils of RTF
- Part 2: GinMaster, unwanted Android apps and legit apps gone bad
- Part 3: How do you define a Potentially Unwanted Application (PUA)?
Not to be outdone, Sophos Director of Global Threat Research Dmitry Samosseiko posted updates from his Twitter account.
VB2013 is over. Kudos to organizers! It was particularly good this year! Looking forward to VB2014 in Seattle.

It wasn’t all business. Our researchers Vanja Svajcer of SophosLabs Croatia and Gabor Szappanos of SophosLabs Hungary took some time to play a little foosball.
Congratulations to all the SophosLabs presenters for having their hard work and innovative research recognized!
