Grecs’ Top 5 ShmooCon 2016 Video Picks

Shmoo EyesIn case you haven’t heard, The Shmoocon Group just announced the release of this year’s Shmoocon videos to With a host of talks I thought I would provide my picks if you are looking for somewhere to start.

At #5 is “#thingswikfound #omarax: What is it, and why you may care?” by … well Wik (a.k.a., Jaime Filson or @jaimefilson). In this hilarious talk Wik takes you through some of the stranger things he found on the Internet using a tool he created that automatically scans over 2 million new domains each day.

Next up at #4 is a slightly more depressing talk called “Online, No One Knows You’re Dead” by Andrew Kalat (a.k.a., @lerg from the Defensive Security Podcast). Andrew takes you through his lessons learned as he tried to add some closure for a recently widowed friend.

If you’ve been following the SANS CTI Summit the past few days, the #3 pick will sound familiar. Jon Bambenek (a.k.a., @bambenek) discusses how to create and mine an open source intelligence database in his talk “Building an Encyclopedia of Malware Configs (to punch miscreants).”

And batting at #2 comes “Speak Security and Enter: Better Ways to Communicate with Non-Technical Users” by Jessy Irwin (a.k.a., @jessysaurusrex) as she “Jessy-plains” her experiences in how to communicate with a lay audience. Oh … and OPSEC by the way.

And at #1 is “LostPass: Pixel-perfect LastPass Phishing” by Sean Cassidy (a.k.a., @sean_a_cassidy) covering how with a little vulnerability and some cloning he was able to create a very convincing phishing attack against LastPass.

You can find the rest of the videos over on Also don’t forget the Firetalk videos are available as well over on IronGeek’s site. What were your favorite talks? Let us know in the comments below?
