Dino Dai Zovi

Dennis Fisher talks with security researcher Dino Dai Zovi about how he got his start in security, the value of learning by doing, how he got root on his high school’s server and why his shellcode for a Windows vulnerability ended up in one of the more infamous Internet worms of the last 10 years.

Dennis Fisher talks with Dan Guido, CEO of Trail of Bits and hacker-in-residence at NYU-Poly, about the school’s first mobile security conference, called THREADS, taking place this week in Brooklyn. Part of the college’s Cybersecurity Awareness Week (CSAW), THREADS will include speaker such as Dino Dai Zovi, Guido, Jon Oberheide and Vincenzo Iozzo.

It occurred to me recently that I’ve been covering the security industry for just about 10 years. That’s a long time to be doing anything, and especially to be writing about one topic. But it’s hard to think of something that would have been much more interesting to cover this decade, given the huge change in the amount of attention paid to security and the fascinating cast of characters this industry has.
