Sandi joins Truste

June 13th 2008 in Uncategorized

I am pleased to announce that I have joined Truste as an Online Compliance Researcher.  The Press Release is here:
http://www.truste.org/about/press_release/06_12_08.php


I am very excited about this new opportunity.  It has always been my dream to be able to focus all of my energies on studying, and tracking down the distributors of, spyware and malware and now that dream is coming true.


Wayne Small, SBS MVP, has also written an announcement about my new role.  I couldn’t help but smile when I read it.  MInd you, I can’t claim to have singlehandedly saved all those MSN Messenger users – it was Patchou of Messenger Plus! fame who first alerted me to the fact that there was a malvertizement appearing in the Windows Live Messenger advertising pane.

Well done, Sandi – you can keep up your MVP status by maintaining the IE pages, and still get paid for playing with malware!
