As promised, we have uploaded the slides and materials that were given out to conference attendees. I understand people are quite upset we've taken so long to update this page... My sincerest apologies for this, however as most of you know we all have full time jobs which sometimes unfortunately takes up all our available time. The slides & code can be found here.

HITBSecConf2003 DVD

We will be releasing the finalised DVD of the business and technical tracks. Do note that the entire conference (both tracks) will take up around 6 DVDs. Pricing and availability will be announced here and on the main site.

2nd February 2004

The conference pictures have finally been uploaded -- you can check them out over here. We'll be putting up the CTF results, the speaker presentations, code and other miscellaneous bits over the next couple of days. I do apologize for the very late upate, but we've all been completey swamped since the end of December!

14th December 2003

Hey guys -- I know everyone is wondering why the slides, code etc is not up yet, but we've been completely swamped as I'm sure most of you know... We'll be putting up all the content over the coming days including photos from all 3 days etc. We will be releasing a DVD recording of the conference tracks which should be available for sale around Christmas time hopefully. On a sidenote, for those of you who are wondering what happened with HD Moore's possible 0-day exploit against Windows Server 2003 discovered YESTERDAY (within 15 minutes at that!!!); HD has informed us that he will require more time in order to research further into what he's discovered. He's on holiday right now anyway, so he will most likely only get started on anything once he gets back to the US (next month). Cheers and thanks to everyone who made it over for the event!
