Hi, Matthew Braverman here again.
In early October, members of Microsoft's anti-malware team attended the 2005 Virus Bulletin Conference in Dublin, Ireland. This is one of the top three annual antivirus industry conferences, and was an excellent opportunity to mix and mingle with some of the leading members of the anti-malware industry and community. While members of our team have attended the annual Virus Bulletin conferences for the past few years, this year was especially exciting for us because we were presenting papers for the first time. We presented two papers: "Defeating Polymorphism: Beyond Emulation", presented by Adrian Stepan, a software developer on our team, and "Win32/Blaster: A Case Study From Microsoft's Perspective", presented by myself.
Both white papers can now be downloaded from the Microsoft Download Center, by clicking on their titles above. We hope that you find these papers interesting. If you have any thoughts or feedback, feel free to send them along or post comments to this blog.
