Felix Leder and Tillmann Werner to talk about Botnet Counter-Attack Techniques

Felix Leder and Tillmann Werner will be demonstrating how it is possible to take over botnets. The talk will cover a structured botnet mitigation approach and discuss several case studies on recent sophisticated malware like Storm, Waledac, and Conficker.

T2 staff thinks that this talk is quite unique and contains some interesting research.

Please see the schedule for details.

Would You Like To Sponsor t2'09?

We are looking for sponsors, if you or your company would like to sponsor t2’09 please contact us.

To protect the independent nature of T2, the following guidelines have been established:

  • No sponsor can affect the agenda. In order to run an independent conference, it is essential that no sponsor influence the topic or content of any given presentation.
  • Each and every presenter is there because of his or her skills. Sponsorship is not a fast lane past the CFP, meaning that sponsorship will not guarantee you a presentation slot at the conference. It does not prevent it either; the bottom line is that the advisory board handles all submissions equally.
