Searching for Evil

Just time for a quick pointer to “Searching for Evil”: Ross Anderson’s tech talk about phishing, spam, and scams on the internet. I had the pleasure of seeing an earlier presentation of this talk (with Richard Clayton) in London earlier this month and can highly recommend it.

One thing I found particularly interesting — though not the main point of the presentation — was a discussion about the best way to organise an attack-resistant graph of connected nodes (turns out it’s a covert cell structure), and the best way to attack such a network.
