Welcome to our new series: interview with a malware hunter. In these Q&A sessions, we’ll take you behind the scenes to get to know our malware intelligence crew. Without further ado, we present our first victim, researcher, and blogger Pieter Arntz.
How did you get into cybersecurity?
I started participating in the forums a long time ago, helping people who had computer problems. Because of the people I met in the forums—Marcin, Doug, Bruce, Mieke [Malwarebytes company founders]—I got interested in malware, specifically adware and spyware. They were looking for someone to write removal guides on the forums. I volunteered, so that’s how I ended up in cybersecurity, working for Malwarebytes.
