This talk focuses on the various trojans the we actually see being used against companies and individuals in the world. It will show the real threats, how they work, what the real impact is. The talk will include screenshots from dropzones and practical demos, possibly as video clips. Today there is a lot of hype around some new proof-of-concept technology or around politically motivated trojans, etc. This talk will deliver a reality check, give an idea what kind of malware the McAfee Research organisation is actually seeing to be used in the real world and show how the diffent trojans work, what the impact is. The material used are internal statistics of the various threats sent to oder discovered by us, some more detailed analysis to make functionality more transparent and some demo's screenshots, etc. This talk will not advertise any products from us or anyone else. Instead of that short examples of various technologies will be used to discuss of that may help or why it fails.
