It's summer. Summer is not just when all of us nerds escape from the sun and find shelter in basements and dark rooms - summer means it's time to head to Las Vegas!
The sudden loss of the friend Barnaby Jack shocked the whole community, however in a few days we'll all still fly in and celebrate the life of one of the greatest in the best way we know: hacking, drinking and discussing about technology.
We'll be there as well, giving our best to try make this the best Blackhat ever. Me, rep and skier will present on the second day, August 1st, from 10:15 a.m. to 11:15 in the Pompeian room and continued from 11:45 a.m. to 12:45 a.m. in Florentine room at Caesar's:
Mo' Malware Mo' Problems - Cuckoo Sandbox to the rescue
In this 2 hours workshop we'll be introducing novices to Cuckoo, how it works and what it's capable of. We'll walk through examples on how it can be customized and how you can leverage its architecture to its best potential. In the second half we'll talk about the challenges of doing automated malware analysis, how malware writers are subverting us and finally we'll preview the work we've been doing on virtual machine introspection.
We hope this will be an occasion to meet with our users, acquire new ones, convince you on the importance of producing open source security software and hopefully grow our line-up of Cuckoo developers. This year's Blackhat has a great set of presentations - in case you miss our you'll surely be able to find us around the conference and at the Rapid7 booth.
We'll also bring along a handful of t-shirts and stickers, if you're quick enough to grab one ;).
See you in Vegas!
