tsu doh nimh writes “There is a security conference being held in Mumbai later this year called MalCon, and the organizers say it’s the first ever conference dedicated to the ‘malcoder community.’ Brian Krebs interviewed one of them and got this gem: ‘Just like the concept of “ethical hacking” has helped organizations to see that hackers are not all that bad, it is time to accept that “ethical malcoding” is required to research, identify and mitigate newer malwares in a “proactive” way.’ Bruce Schneier is speaking at a sister MalCon event in Pune, India two days later, and he said he doesn’t agree with the organizer’s premise that more malware is needed to build better security tools.”
