The Acrobat Connect recording for this weeks Nashville ColdFusion User Group meeting is now available. Ben Greenbaum, Senior Research Manager, Symantec gave a really really (did I say REALLY?) excellent presentation on the current landscape of Web-based attacks and the eCrime economy. He had tons of stats on the types of attacks that have taken place over the last several years (including 2007). He also discussed the "underground eCrime" world and how it is being used as the marketplace for the sale of personally identifiable information and complete identities. It was an eye-opening presentation that I encourage all developers to watch.

The recording is 59 minutes and includes all Q&A.

  1. Good preso, thanks for recording. The Symantec Global Vulnerability Network looks similar to Secure Computing's TrustedSource (soon to be McAfee).

    There is also an excellent blog about threats and trends in web and network security.
