    BLACK HAT BRIEFINGS CALL FOR PAPERS

    Hello NT BugTraq readers. I would like to announce Black Hat's 2004 initial
    call for papers. If you plan on submitting a paper, please read the full
    CFP which can be located
    at
    <http://www.blackhat.com/html/bh-usa-04/bh-usa-04-cfp.html>http://www.blackhat.com/html/bh-usa-04/bh-usa-04-cfp.html.

    The Black Hat Briefings was created to fill the need for computer security
    professionals to better understand the security risks to information
    infrastructures and computer systems.

    What makes Black Hat Briefings different? The speakers. We select the
    speakers that are doing unique research, writing the security tools, or
    finding the bugs. No vendor pitches. Just straight talk from people who are
    experts in their chosen field of study.

    If you have original research, new tools, or a fresh perspective on an old
    problem, we encourage you to submit a presentation. By presenting at the
    Black Hat Briefings you have the opportunity to both influence your peers
    and to contribute to the advancement of the state of the art. We are
    striving to create a high-end technical conference and any talk that helps
    reach this goal will be given extra attention.

    Topics of discussion will include zero day attacks and
    defenses, forensics, log analysis, physical security, privacy, anonymity,
    and application security. New for 2004, the there will be a "Turbo Talks"
    track that will consist of 20 minute talks covering subjects that do not
    require a full length presentation slot. Topics can range widely, and there
    are no specific guidelines for what must be included.

    Please do not wait to submit. Presentations are selected and evaluated in
    the order received.

    NTBugtraq Editor's Note:

    Most viruses these days use spoofed email addresses. As such, using an Anti-Virus product which automatically notifies the perceived sender of a message it believes is infected may well cause more harm than good. Someone who did not actually send you a virus may receive the notification and scramble their support staff to find an infection which never existed in the first place. Suggest such notifications be disabled by whomever is responsible for your AV, or at least that the idea is considered.
