Microsoft's semi-annual invitation-only conference is set to start later this week. While Microsoft tries to keep the details of discussions secret, the company does eventually provide a minimal overview of what takes place. Topics for the fall 2007 event will include Metasploit, DNS pinning, Windows Mobile, Internet Explorer, Office, and more.

The company maintains a sparsely populated Web page for BlueHat on its TechNet Web site and maintains a BlueHat blog, in which Andrew Cushman, director of the Microsoft Security Response Center (MSRC) and Security Community Outreach, recently posted a few tidbits of information.
