It’s that time of year again! Tonight marks the start of CarolinaCon 7. If you’ve never been, it is a great little tech conference put on by nc2600. It’s grown over the years and is now up to around 200 attendees. I’ve been very lucky to be around for the last 3 (including the one this weekend) and have also been extremely lucky to have the honor of giving a talk at each one.
This year I will be giving a talk on Malware Identification and Classification. Specifically, I will be showing how to do this using Yara and Python. Since malware has become a major problem and is exploding in growth, I thought it would be a great topic to talk about. If you’re in the Raleigh area and want to attend, the conference is extremely cheap to get into, and it gives you access to an entire weekend full of over 15 talks, trivia, lock picking, capture the flag, and more! If you don’t get a chance to attend, but are still interested in my talk, I’ll be posting the slides and demo content after I’m done presenting. My talk is at 2pm tomorrow. Also on Sunday Gerry Brunelle will be giving a talk on Malware Analysis, which fits in beautifully with my talk. Between those two talks, you should have a great intro into the world of Malware.
Hope to see you there!
