GRRCon is a Michigan-based information security and hacking conference put together to provide the community with a venue to come together and share ideas, information, solutions, forge relationships, and most importantly engage with like minded people in a fun atmosphere without all the elitist “Diva” nonsense. GRRCon brings together the CISO, the hacker, the security practitioner, and the researcher in a one-of-a-kind experience you CANNOT get elsewhere. Bishop Fox's Alissa Gilbert is a speaker at this year's event, and they are discussing the origins of malware (as seen below).

"Hey Ma, Where Does Malware Come From?"

This talk discusses malware writing, sharing, and malware-as-a-service. Who writes malware, how does it find its targets, and is there a customer service line if your malware doesn’t work? These answers and more as Alissa explains the lifecycle of malware and how to get some malware yourself! Woo! Now that you know where the malware came from, what can you do about it to improve your defenses? Come see. Oh and the password is infected.
