References for virtualization rootkit debate[edit]

I noticed that people keep inserting a reference to an "anti-blue-pill" article from virtualization.info.This article has was written in 2006 and doesn't take into account all the facts that were disclosed at the Black Hat 2007. I suggest to reference other articles, that are more current and accurate .E.g.:

http://www.matasano.com/log/924/joannas-response-to-our-talk/

And it would also be nice to reference this article: http://theinvisiblethings.blogspot.com/2007/08/virtualization-detection-vs-blue-pill.html

that summarizes the Blue Pill part of our Black Hat 2007 talk and could be taken as our response to the "Ptackek's challenge"

Here are some independent press articles about the challange, written after Black Hat 2007:

Is this article biographical or public relations material - or maybe neither?[edit]

Like so many biographies on Wikipedia the information provided appears to be rather narrowly defined public relations material rather than the broader scope I would expect in a biography. By all means put this sort of information in an article about the company which Rutkowska runs but in an article where the title is the name of a person, I think it is reasonable to expect a bit more background information on that person, rather than just their working career (her father worked in... c). —Preceding unsigned comment added by 81.187.233.172 (talk) 09:15, 26 August 2009 (UTC)

I agree this whole bio is awkward and it's more of a description of one of the few of my presentations (from 2-3 years ago), rather then description of my person. Not to mention that nobody seem to notice that over the last two years I, together with my team, have been working and doing research in many other areas then just "bluepill", like e.g. Xen security, Trusted Computing security (Intel TXT), BIOS and chipset security (SMM), etc. I believe one could write just one-two sentence description mentioning all those topics with the reference to e.g. my company resources website where all the papers are kept (http://invisiblethingslab.com/itl/Resources.html). Also, please note that I'm not a "specialist", whatever it means, but, if anything, a researcher. As for the personal information about me -- well, I'm afraid you won't find anything on the net, besides few interviews with me, where I however never mention what my father did or which schools I attended, as I find such information irrelevant for my "online presence". In general -- take it easy -- this whole article should be just 2-3 sentences, plus a link to my website, and maybe to few select interviews. --User:Joannarutkowska
Ah, it's also rather funny to quote the eWeek "Five Hackers who Put a Mark on 2006" like if it was such a big deal. Come on, this was just some guy thoughts with a sexy title, nothing that should go into a serious "encyclopedia". Same for the other two articles that are referenced in the External Links section -- is there any particular reason to focus on those two articles and not on some dozen of others (see e.g. http://invisiblethingslab.com/itl/Press.html)? Parhaps would be best to remove all the links to press articles (in most cases they are terribly innacurate anyway) User:Joannarutkowska —Preceding undated comment added 20:30, 26 August 2009 (UTC).

Self-admission: her own wallet has got stolen[edit]

http://theinvisiblethings.blogspot.com/search/label/personal .

I think the fact is relevant to be included, given her security background. From an image point of view the fact adds in frankness and humanity while decreasing the ground for mythology and idolization. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 78.134.27.61 (talk) 00:28, 2 April 2011 (UTC)
