Well, it would seem were we to be looking for a resource in Davis to talk
about computer security, we should turn to the computer security lab in
the CS department at UC Davis, http://seclab.cs.ucdavis.edu/. Contacting
the professors might be difficult being that it is summer (they travel a
lot in the summer, many PI meetings and funding stuff) and this is short
notice, but there are a lot of grad students hanging around the lab. I
personally only paid nominal attention to the IE exploits, but there may
be some others interested. I'll ask around this afternoon.
