Ollmann speaking at Hacker Halted USA 2009

Next Wednesday I'll be speaking at Hacker Halted 2009 down in Miami. I've never been to a Hacker Halted conference, so I'm looking forward to seeing what it's all like. So far the event has been really well organized by the Hacker Halted team - which always bodes well for a successful conference.

There's an outstanding line up of speakers for the event - in fact I'd go as far as saying that the line up is considerably stronger than recent BlackHat events. It's going to be a great event.

I'll be covering the topic: Factoring Criminal Malware in to Web Application Design

Here's a brief abstract for the talk...
With C&C driven malware near ubiquitous and over one-third of home-PC's infected with malware capable of hijacking live browser sessions, what attacks are _really_ possible? How can the criminals controlling the malware make real money from a "secure" e-commerce site? How are Web application developers meant to detect, stop or prevent an attack by their own customers?
If you're at the event or just happen to be in Miami Wednesday/Thursday, drop me an email if you care to grab a beer and discuss the evolving threat landscape.
