The next Hack In The Box Security Conference 2008 (HITBSecConf2008) will be held on the coming 27-30 October 2008 in the 5-star Westin Hotel of Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia.

  • Structured Network Threat Analysis and Forensics
  • Bluetooth, RFID & Wireless Hacking

Another 2 days will be event sessions on:
