The 2008 Black Hat Security Conference in Las Vegas was chock full of
security research and vulnerability information provided by the
brightest minds in the security community. Here is a recap of the
highlights from this year's Black Hat security sessions.
An anonymous poll of attendees at last week.s Black Hat security
conference in Las Vegas found that web services and web 2.0 technologies
will pose the biggest security concerns to enterprises in the coming
year, followed closely by security issues stirred up by virtualization.
Commissioned by Symantec, the survey polled 500 attendees at the
conference, which drew nearly 5,000 people this year.
According to the survey, Black Hat was attended primarily by
security-minded individuals from North America. Though the conference
focused heavily on hacks and vulnerabilities drummed up by security
researchers attending the event, IT managers and enterprise security
personnel dominated attendance.
