tom_kevin_zombieKevin and I want to thank everyone that came out to our talk at DEFCON 17 this past weekend.  We had a great time giving the talk and thanks for the feedback!  Even the two Facebook developers that came to our Q&A enjoyed it!  Having said that, Kevin and I will never, ever get a Facebook party invite while at Black Hat and/or DEFCON.  Oh well! At least @dualcoremusic got to play live! 🙂

You can download the slide deck from SlideShare that was in the DEFCON 17 CD.  We plan on giving the talk a few more times in the next few months so we don’t plan to release the full version of the slide deck yet.  However, we will post the video as soon as we get it.  The slides on the DEFCON CD are mostly text…no cool Zombie graphics (thanks to @JaneDelay for the Photoshop work BTW) but it should give you a good overview of the talk.

Robin Wood’s fantastic tool called KreiosC2 was also released during our talk.  I did a demo which is posted here and talked a lot about how the PoC code functions.  If you don’t know already…KreiosC2 is a tool written in Ruby which allows IRC like command and control of systems over Twitter.  Very cool!  Also, check out the redesign of Robin’s website.  Awesome.  Make sure you follow Robin on Twitter!  He is one you need to follow!

DEFCON was awesome as usual!  Lot’s of people this year..perhaps an increase from last year and of course the usual hijinks.  It was awesome catching up with everyone and meeting new people.  I attended lots of great talks including the “DEFCON Security Jam 2: The Fails Keep on Coming“.  This was one that you should see the video for…especially the presentations by @haxorthematrix and @myrcurial.  Speaking of @mycurial…you really need to see the awesome yet scary presentation that @myrcurial and @TiffanyRad did on Sunday titled “Your Mind: Legal Status, Rights and Securing Yourself“.  I highly recommend this talk!

The podcasters meetup was also a success!  Thanks to @pauldotcom for hosting and for throwing such an awesome party this year and a shout out to the guys over at!  The audio will be posted soon, probably over at the Security Justice site.

Pictures will be posted soon!  Still trying to recover from Vegas!
