New Widespread Android Vulnerability

Very interested to find out how you can modify android applications without changing the cryptographic signature.  Feeling pretty happy I bought the Nexus 4 so I don't have to wait for my device manufacturer to create and test a patch.

SANS SEC504 in Salt Lake City August 21st, 2013

SANS SEC504 - Hacker Techniques, Exploits, and Incident Handling

I will be mentoring this course in Salt Lake City starting August 21st.

Mentor courses allow you to learn SANS course material locally in multi-week class sessions. This allows you more time to learn and master the same material taught at the SANS six-day Conference events.  It also helps avoid travel and time away from work.

Class sizes are small, usually under 12 students, which allows you one-on-one assistance during the sessions.
