Black Hat Professionalism, AntiVirus Ineffectiveness

In brief, why is Black Hat sending me an email about “Parties, Schedule, and Swag?”  “It wouldn’t be Black Hat without the parties.”  C’mon now?  DEF CON Parties is entirely separate from the DEF CON conference.  I guess this is one more step closer for Black Hat’s migration to RSA type status.

Another client support person asked why our corporate end point AntiVirus solution isn’t working.  I would have thought by now that everyone in IT knows that AV is broken.  I’ve been reading articles about the ineffectiveness of AV for years.
