The discovery of the Flame malware that targets Middle Eastern countries, predominantly Iran, has brought politically motivated threats into the spot light again.

*''' Topic: Tales from the Crypt(o): Lessons About Secrecy from Julius Caesar to Moxie Merlinspike '''
  
In this talk I will discuss the Flame malware and contrast it with other politically motivated threats we have seen. I will discuss how Flame was discovered, what it is capable of and give updates on the latest analysis. In addition I will talk about the increasing use of cyber espionage and what that may mean for software developers.
+
*''' Bio: '''Tin Zaw is the former president of OWASP Los Angeles chapter. '''
  
Flame is peculiar in that it was written with a combination of C++, Lua and sqlite. I will show how the threat uses these technologies and how that differs from the malware we see every day.

Liam O Murchu is a manager of Security Response at Symantec. He has appeared on CBS 60 Minutes about Stuxnet virus. He has also presented about Stuxnet at Los Angeles chapters of OWASP and ISSA.
+
Honeypots commonly take a strategic backseat to IT security operations. This has not stopped community based security professionals and enthusiasts to harness the advantages of the honeypot to form world wide networks capturing and sourcing malicious behavior. Communities that have become vendors found opportunity in higher quality IP lists as well providing deep expertise to provide solutions to anti-fraud behavior. The combination is always worth consideration if you are a customer.
