A number of years ago (2008 or '09(?) either at Blackhat or CCC) there was a really interesting (and I mean frightening) presentation on overclocked stock trading servers that are stripped of everything including a number of common security settings in the name of eliminating latency. The video of it seems to have dropped off the internet, but I think about it every now and again. If anyone recognises this vague description and has a link, please share it. Wonder how much remains relevant.
