Anti-Virus Conferences and Viruses (VB conference 2004)

I hope we don't get an outbreak next week as I will be travelling to the Virus Bulletin Conference in Chicago. You'll never know what is going to happen with the new JPG exploit and if a worm or virus (using this exploit) will spread ... it could be a big one this time!
We did see some outbreaks in the past during several anti-virus conferences as VB, EICAR and AVAR. Maybe virus writers think that all AV researchers don't have enough resources at conferences to prevent such outbreaks but that's definitely not the case!
BTW I'll try to keep you updated during the conference with some conference pictures.
