Automated Static Malware Analysis with Pythonect

Hi All,

I wanted to share with you a post I wrote about how to automate static
malware analysis with Pythonect:

http://blog.ikotler.org/2012/08/automated-static-malware-analysis-with.html

Pythonect is a new, experimental, general-purpose dataflow programming
language based on Python.

In this post I explain the benefits of using dataflow programming in
research and analysis of malware.

Additionally I have provided some examples: computing MD5 and SHA1
digests, searching for all the INT 3 instructions occurrences, and
Shannon's entropy calculation.

I'd appreciate any feedback you can give me on the content.

Regards,
Itzik Kotler | http://www.ikotler.org

Cyber Warfare / Network Defense Simulation

Hi,

I would like to ask if you guys have any suggestions (including
articles, references, books, sites, ideas, anything) on how to build a
"Poor man's Cyber Warfare / Network Defense Simulation" for:

1 - study
2 - forensic analysis
3 - vulnerabilities replication
4 - worm/virus spreading
5 - DLP (data leak/loss prevention) study

For my first attempts I used a dual-quad xeon server with 32GB ram and
managed to create a whole network with ids/ips, firewall,
workstations, attackers, database, log collecting using linux
containers (lxc).

Thank you all

CanSecWest 2012 Mar 7-9; 2nd call for papers, closes next week, Monday. Dec 5 2011

So after a dozen years or so organizing conferences, you 
get the urge to pull levers and try experimenting with 
things. So this year I sent out the CanSecWest CFP 
only over Twitter, and G+ publicly. Just curious as to the 
adoption and information dispersion rate, and some 
estimate of the attention these newer channels are getting.

So after this experiment I hear about people having 
submissions and missing  the CFP. So for my control set, 
here is the normal announce message to different e-mail 
lists. We'll do a Second CanSecWest CFP, but a brief one. 
Send us your proposal by the end of Monday next week, 
December 5, 2011.

The questions and information needed is the same as 
usual (see website), also for my curiosity could you 
include:

12. Where did you hear about the CFP from?

cheers,

CFP: Special Issue of COMPUTER NETWORS (ELSEVIER) on 'Botnet Activity: Analysis, Detection and Shutdown'

CFP: Special Issue of COMPUTER NETWORS (ELSEVIER) on "Botnet Activity: Analysis, Detection and Shutdown"

Apologies for multiple copies of this announcement.
-------------------------

Dear Colleagues,

Please consider the following opportunity to submit and publish original
scientific results to a SPECIAL ISSUE of COMPUTER NETWORKS
(ELSEVIER journal) on "Botnet Activity: Analysis, Detection and Shutdown".

The submission deadline is set to December 1st, 2011.

http://ees.elsevier.com/comnet/

A pdf version of this CFP is available at http://faculty.cse.tamu.edu/guofei/CFP_COMNET-Botnets.pdf
Please help distribute. Thanks!

-------------------------

Large scale attacks and criminal activities experienced in recent
years have exposed the Internet to serious security breaches, and
alarmed the world regarding cyber crime. In the center of this problem
are the so called botnets -- collections of infected zombie machines
(bots) controlled by the botmaster to perpetrate malicious activities
and massive attacks. Some recent botnets are composed of millions of
infected machines, making use of this attack vector inevitably
harmfully. Hence, it is paramount to detect, analyze and shutdown such
overlay networks before they become active. Research on botnet
activity is mostly related to detection and disruption.
