Update August 2 2009
After being warned about a possible Trojan horse on the Defcon CD, a few malware analysts ripped through the CD contents looking for the file. It was pretty amazing seeing the two guys work. One used a Mac laptop while the other ran the PDF in a VMWare session. They zeroed in on a few files and looked at the binary information along with the connections the file was trying to make. In the end, both figured out that the trojan horse warning was just a false positive. Crisis adverted.
Well that’s just great, the Defcon CD has a confirmed Trojan horse and everyone has been told to not view/use the files. I guess it shouldn’t come as any surprise that a hacking convention would have a hacked CD. The danger here is that there are federal agents and security professionals here with some serious information on their laptops.

We have added a new Reseller Inventory Panel to our Vault control center. The Reseller Inventory list allows all our Resellers to view our entire server stock as well as any Rapid Deployment servers. Rapid Deployment servers are already pre-configured servers that are ready to go within 30 minutes! Resellers can simply order these by the server name based on their desired specification!
We received another shipment of a new Xeon X5472 package that we will be offering for both Krypt.com and HiDefServers.com (Crystal Package). The X series Xeon CPU from Intel is unique in that the processor can be overclocked because the CPU multiplier is unlocked but you pay a small price of added heat output. We won’t be overclocking any CPU’s though to preserve longevity of the processor =)[youtube fChF57vhYyU]
