Software under siege

| | Comments ()

This last Thursday Ernst Leiss gave a direct speech here at A Coruña. He used his classic presentation titled "Software Under Siege: Viruses and Worms" and, this time, I was able to attend and enjoy every comment :)

Ernst Leiss wrote "Principles of Data Security" (1982, Plenum) and "Software Under Siege" (1990, Elsevier) among other several reference works targeting digital information security so it was a great opportunity to discuss with him in person about some really interesting topics regarding to undecidible problems and detection algorithms, adding time variable on the Cohen's seminal work or discussing about the infection routine for the Jerusalem virus (a 22 years old virus!)

On the other hand, we had some time to comment on the antivirus industry and its current research lines.

Awesome speech!
