lukehopewell1 writes "The tenth annual AusCERT (Australian Computer Emergency Response Team) conference kicks off today in Queensland, Australia, touting appearances from Microsoft, Telstra, Rio Tinto and the founder of Kaspersky Labs, Eugene Kaspersky. You can watch a video wrap-up of AusCERT conferences in the years gone by, complete with laughs, interviews, old-timey newscasts and that time IBM gave out USB drives laden with malware."

    Do they do anything useful? I've contacted these guys multiple times about large-scale break-ins on systems holding plenty of personal information, but no response.

      Hey! Be reasonable... how can they have time to do work when they have so many conferences to attend?

      You probably don't have the Gold Platinum Quadruple-Plus Membership needed to even warrant a glance.

      Yep, they're very useful for excuses when you want a junket. Also when you want your environment so locked down you can't do any actual work thanks to implementing their paranoid ineffective ramblings.

      AusCERT aren't the Australian National CERT although they have in some ways been the de-facto CERT for some time. That position is now taken up by CERT Australia who are working closely with AusCERT and taken up some of their work. If you've got problems contacting them, send me some contact details and I'll try and help you out - I know some of their staff. AusCERT have been an incredibly useful source of information on compromised systems on my customer's networks.

    IBM gave out USB drives laden with malware

    They gave away copies of Lotus Notes?

Mommy, what happens to your files when you die?
