The 2008 Black Hat Security Conference in Las Vegas was chock full of 
security research and vulnerability information provided by the 
brightest minds in the security community. Here is a recap of the 
highlights from this year's Black Hat security sessions.

An anonymous poll of attendees at last week.s Black Hat security 
conference in Las Vegas found that web services and web 2.0 technologies 
will pose the biggest security concerns to enterprises in the coming 
year, followed closely by security issues stirred up by virtualization. 
Commissioned by Symantec, the survey polled 500 attendees at the 
conference, which drew nearly 5,000 people this year.

According to the survey, Black Hat was attended primarily by 
security-minded individuals from North America. Though the conference 
focused heavily on hacks and vulnerabilities drummed up by security 
researchers attending the event, IT managers and enterprise security 
personnel dominated attendance.
