Pwnie Awards Nominees!!!

Posted On // 2 comments
I would like to announce I was nominated for a Pwnie Award in Most Innovative Research category. I was nominated for a research i made few months ago which is described in a whitepaper called "Generic Unpacking of Self-modifying, Aggressive, Packed Binary Programs". Of course there are two more nominations: Bernhard Mueller is nominated for his great "From 0 to 0day on Symbian" paper and a set of people (Alexander Sotirov, Marc Stevens, Jacob Appelbaum, Arjen Lenstra, David Molnar, Dag Arne Osvik, Benne de Weger) for breaking the internet with theirs "MD5 considered harmful today" research. This make the competition even tougher. However being nominated in this category with all of the great people is still a significant distinction for me. Who will win the award? - time will show! I would also like to thank few people who noticed me about nomination yesterday night - what's really funky they did it almost in the same time. So kudos for Julien, spender, Tomasz M - thanks for letting me know :-)

P.S I heard some strange rumors about that entire BlackHat2009 is going to be cancelled this year because Peter Ferrie* found all the rootkit talks disgusting. I really hope this is not true!@!!

P.S2 Don't forget to check all the others Pwnies nominations in different categories.

* as the myth says he is a well known internet ninja who often risks his life in undercover investigations by monitoring numerous hacker forums, together with using multiple anonymous nicknames (it's quite possible he is also responding himself) and picking internet fights with 9yrs old kids and nuns. He constantly puts his life at stake not only for me, but also for you and for the entire internet and galaxy! Please beware and stay focused because he and his hypocrisy and his giant ego may jump out from your toilet too!

Congratulations on your nomination! I hope you will win - you deserve it.

P.S i have been monitoring the discussion with Ferrie on the openrce and i must say i have never seen such hypocritical-buffoon before. I guess next time he will appear on BlackHat someone will kick his snitchin' butt. So Ferrie who do you want to sell today? - greetings from AlphaDog
