More details on the conference here at Security Focus.

For those of you who are unfamiliar with Xcon,  I’ll give you a little background.  The yearly host of the Xcon conference series is a group  going by the name Xfocus.  One of their 2007 conference attendees, XYZreg (Zhang Yi), a regular member of their security group,  claimed to have broken Kaspersky Anti-Virus Technology.  When I went to the conference in 2006, two of the major sponsors were Microsoft and NSfocus. NSfocus was one of the very first hacker sites in China, originally called the Green Army.  The organizaton has a very confusing history.

If anyone is planning on attending the conference, please drop me a line.
