[Benjamin Caudill,Rhino Security Labs] was expected to release the code for Proxyham, as well as show off a prototype, at the hacking conference Def Con in Las Vegas next month. But over the weekend, due to mysterious circumstances, the talk at Def Con got cancelled, and the development of ProxyHam was shuttered.
