The annual FIRST conference provides a setting for conference participants to attend a wide range of presentations delivered by leading experts in both the CSIRT field and from the wider global security community. The conference also creates opportunities for networking, collaboration, and sharing technical information and management practices. Just as importantly, the conference enables attendees to meet their peers and build confidential relationships across corporate disciplines and geographical boundaries.
We did it again 🙂 and this year, I presented on “Portable Destructive File (PDF): Attacks and Analysis”. The abstact of the presentation can be found here. The presentation is about how attacks on PDF readers are (generally) carried out and how analysis can be performed on malicious PDF documents.
The conference is awesome and I am already looking forward for next year’s event. It was good to meet with usual suspects and of course new friends. 🙂
