The Program Committee for the 5th USENIX Workshop on Large-Scale
Exploits and Emergent Threats (LEET '12) invites you to submit your work.
Paper submissions are due Monday, February 13, 2012, 11:59 p.m. PST.

Now in its fifth year, LEET continues to provide a unique forum for the
discussion of threats to the confidentiality of our data, the integrity
of digital transactions, and the dependability of the technologies we
increasingly rely on. We encourage submissions of papers that focus on
the malicious activities themselves (e.g., reconnaissance, exploitation,
privilege escalation, rootkit installation, attack), our responses as
defenders (e.g., prevention, detection, and mitigation), or the social,
political, and economic goals driving these malicious activities and the
legal and ethical codes guiding our defensive responses.

Topics of interest include but are not limited to:
* Infection vectors for malware (worms, viruses, etc.)
* Botnets, command, and control channels
* Spyware
* Operational experience and case studies
* Forensics
* Click fraud
* Measurement studies
* New threats and related challenges
* Boutique and targeted malware
* Phishing
* Spam
* Underground economy
* Carding and identity theft
* Miscreant counterintelligence
* Denial-of-service attacks
* Hardware vulnerabilities
* Legal issues
* The arms race (rootkits, anti-anti-virus, etc.)
* New platforms (cellular networks, wireless networks, mobile devices)
* Camouflage and detection
* Reverse engineering
* Vulnerability markets and zero-day economics
* Online money laundering
* Understanding the enemy
* Data collection challenges

Submissions guidelines and more information can be a found at

LEET '12 will take place on April 24, 2012, in San Jose, CA, and will be
co-located with NSDI '12:

We look forward to receiving your submissions!
