Game Theory of Malware article online.

I wrote an article on the game theory of emergent threats that is now online. It is based on presentations from earlier this year. You can grab the article here.

As a sidenote, Amrit thinks that security people like to talk about game theory because they like to play video games. I of course strongly disagree. I will have you know the only video game I still like to play is portfolio explosion on e-trade.

Bad marketing department! Bad! No bagel day!

Hoff had a post about a VirtSec startup known as Hyperbole. Their product/feature names include such gems as HyperTension, HyperSensitivity, and HyperVentilated.


All I can think is of some CSO three years from now muttering "I bought HyperTension and all I got was hypertension."

Leave Sourcefire Alone!

Apparently Barracuda, the SpamAssassin + ClamAV in a box company and perennial purchasers of godforsaken airport advertising space, is trying to eat SourceFire, the people who own ClamAV. I am debating making a Leave-Britney-Alone style video as a response. Trust me, no one wants to see that.*

* In interest of full disclosure, I do hold FIRE in my portfolio.
