Apple nixes second Black Hat talk

A second Black Hat session focused on Apple security disappears from the current session schedule.

LAS VEGAS--A panel discussion with Apple employees talking about the company's security practices was canceled by its moderator.

Black Hat founder and director Jeff Moss told ComputerWorld that "it was them talking about security engineering and how they take security seriously. It would have put Apple in a positive light."

Last week, another session on Apple FileVault was pulled at the request of its presenter, Charles Edge. He reportedly signed an agreement with Apple preventing him from talking about the vulnerablities he'd found.
