    This year the Virus Bulleting Conference, one of the most prestigious annual events in the anti-virus industry, took place in Vancouver, Canada.

It was a special event for Kaspersky Lab since we had a record-breaking total of seven speakers:  who covered the most interesting and hot topics such as mobile malware, on-line fraud and black markets, targeted attacks. Last, but not least, we were able to reveal some new details about Stuxnet in a joint presentation with Microsoft. The VB conference demonstrated again how important cooperation between researchers is. Between the joint work on Stuxnet and the Zeus-related arrests we saw how AV researchers from different countries; cultures and companies join forces to fight cyber crime and to make this world safer.

Every year the AV community gathers at VB - next year it will be in Barcelona, Spain and I hope we will also have good news to share again.

PS We will be posting the Kaspersky VB papers online over the next few days here http://www.kaspersky.com/VB_2010
