Welcome to UnsafeBits, a blog discussing the latest in security research and documenting the ongoing development by cybercriminals of techniques to compromise and control the computers of the unwary.
Hacking and security research have always been about the journey, not the destination. In this, I hope to be your tour guide into the world of academic research, corporate development and criminal exploration of a variety of facets of computer security.
While many blogs will link to interesting bits of news, I hope to bring you original interviews and information on the latest research, illuminating the stories behind the data. In many ways, this will be a reporter’s notebook, delivering content that will delve deeper into the latest research than news articles would typically venture.
For the next few week, I plan to peer into the research that will be presented next week in Las Vegas at the Black Hat Conference and the following DEFCON hacking conference.
