An anonymous reader writes "Microsoft will host a two-day security love-fest this Thursday and Friday at its Redmond campus. Among those scheduled to attend are reps from Symantec, Trend Micro and Websense, as well as folks from AOL, Cisco Systems, Microsoft, Sun Microsystems and Qwest. Government and law enforcement expected to attend include the FBI, Secret Service and US-CERT. Topics of discussion will include Microsoft's response to zero-day flaws, new styles of denial-of-service attacks, spam, phishing and weaknesses in protection technologies such as sandboxes and virtual keyboards on banking sites."
