RECon’08 wrap-up


Several analysts from Sophos recently attended the RECon’08 Reverse Engineering conference held in Montreal. Although not an “anti-virus industry” conference, the quality of trainers, presenters and delegates was outstanding and gave us a chance to mingle and talk to other reversers, sharing an occasional “trick” or two.

Several of the talks were of particular interest, like Bruce’s talk about Targetted attacks with Office Documents – something that I’ve blogged about here. Other valuable talks included writing IDA plugins, unpacking, deobfuscation and RE techniques.
