Luckily I was able to escape Washington DC’s 3rd round of snow to enjoy the tropical 40 degree weather here in Tampa today and write this post. Despite the blizzard and its many names, the ShmooCon faithful came out in full force to make another great conference. As usual, ShmooCon featured interesting presentations, shenanigans, and a chance to hang out with those friends you usually only see at Cons.
I want to thank everyone who attended the Stealing Guests…The VMware Way talk, especially since no one threw shmooballs at us. For those of you who haven’t done so yet, head on over to the [Tools] (https://fyrmassociates.com/tools/) section of the Web site to grab GuestStealer and try it out yourself. Also, Ron over at Skull Security created an Nmap script to identify vulnerable VMware systems. Visit his [blog] (https://blog.skullsecurity.org/2010/how-to-install-an-nmap-script) to download the script and view instructions for installing the script.
For those of you who were unable to attend the talk…or find a video, here are the [slides] (https://fyrmassociates.com/pdfs/Stealing_Guests_The_VMware_Way-ShmooCon2010.pdf).
I would also like to thank everyone who came up to the FYRM booth and talked to Matt and I. The security bug killing/reaction time testing flash game appeared to be a big hit, which drew many contestants…some more determined than others!
