PC World review of virus busters

The Antispyware Coalition public workshop in DC was a great experience, and they have just released videos of many of the panels. You can view the whole list here. They use the dreaded Realplayer, but some of these videos are worth looking at if you’re interested in this field.

Eric Howes, our director of malware research, is on the panel on “Industry Self-Regulation” (video) (and I ask a question at about 48:00 and Ben Edelman follows me with some good remarks. I also ask a question at about 50:00, to the panel “Overview of Solutions”.)

But if you watch one video, watch Walt Mossberg of the Wall Street Journal. He presented a wild, outspoken take on spyware and cookies, followed by an exchange with DoubleClick. You can see it here, just forward to about 23:00. While I don’t necessarily agree with everything he says, it’s quite entertaining.
