Blackhat USA 2008 Talk Picks

The Blackhat conference starts tomorrow and it looks like a great show. Val, Colin, and I's talks will be on Wednesday and the content is looking really good. Here's a list of some other talks that I think are worth checking out:

Alternative Medicine: The Malware Analyst's Blue Pill
Paul Royal

Paul is one of the leading (if not the leading) researcher in unpacking technology. His new unpacking system looks nothing short of fantastic. This is scheduled at the same time as Val's talk, which is both cruel and unfair.

How to Impress Girls with Browser Memory Protection Bypass
Alexander Sotirov and Mark Dowd

This talk claims to lay waste to Vista's memory protections and should be fantastic. This is certainly not one to miss!

Dan Kaminsky's talk looks great as well. Be sure and catch it.
