He has spent the majority of his career tracking threats in the Crimeware domain, including reverse-engineering data structures and algorithms found in malware in order to create automated frameworks for harvesting configuration and botnet data. Previously, he worked as a software developer and unix administrator in the financial industry and also spent six years in the U.S. Army. Jason holds multiple certifications related to reverse-engineering and application exploitation and has published numerous papers on topics such as writing malware scripts pretending to be a bot, unpackers, configuration data harvesters and covert channel utilities.
