[PLUG] USENIX LEET '10 Call for Papers Submissions Deadline Approaching

The Program Committee for the 3rd USENIX Workshop on Large-Scale  
Exploits and Emergent Threats
(LEET '10) invites you to contribute to your work.

Now in its third year, LEET continues to provide a unique forum for  
the discussion of threats to the confidentiality of our data, the  
integrity of digital transactions, and the dependability of the  
technologies we increasingly rely on. We encourage submissions of  
papers that focus on the malicious activities themselves (e.g.,  
reconnaissance, exploitation, privilege escalation, rootkit  
installation, attack), our responses as defenders (e.g., prevention,  
detection, and mitigation), or the social, political, and economic  
goals driving these malicious activities and the legal and ethical  
codes guiding our defensive responses.

Topics of interest include but are not limited to:
* Infection vectors for malware (worms, viruses, etc.)
* Botnets, command, and control channels
* Spyware
* Operational experience
* Forensics
* Click fraud
* Measurement studies
* New threats and related challenges
* Boutique and targeted malware
* Phishing
* Spam
* Underground markets
* Carding and identity theft
* Miscreant counterintelligence
* Denial-of-service attacks
* Hardware vulnerabilities
* Legal issues
* The arms race (rootkits, anti–anti-virus, etc.)
* New platforms (cellular networks, wireless networks, mobile devices)
* Camouflage and detection
* Reverse engineering
* Vulnerability markets and zero-day economics
* Online money laundering
* Understanding the enemy
* Data collection challenges

Paper submissions are due Thursday, February 25, 2010, 11:59 p.m. PST.
Submissions guidelines and more information can be a found at

LEET aims to be a true workshop, with the twin goals of fostering the  
development of preliminary work and helping to unify the broad  
community of researchers and practitioners who focus on worms, bots,  
spam, spyware, phishing, DDoS, and the ever-increasing palette of  
large-scale Internet-based threats. Each author will have 15 minutes  
to present his or her work, followed by 15 minutes of discussion with  
the workshop participants.

LEET '10 will take place on April 27, 2010, in San Jose, CA, and will  
be co-located with NSDI '10:

We look forward to receiving your submissions!

On behalf of the LEET '10 Program Committee,
