A lot has changed over the past four years. We’ve seen major ransomware and wipers take the Internet by storm. Empires of bots have done everything from mining crypto to helping change how people vote. And business travel has come to a standstill thanks to a viral enemy that caused a global pandemic.
As they say, what a time to be alive.
You know what hasn’t changed? Kaspersky’s Global Research and Analysis Team (GReAT) and its quest to help keep the good guys one step ahead of the bad ones in the virtual and physical world.
What does that have to do with four years ago? Well, my dear readers, let me tell you.
A bit over four years ago, I wrote on this very blog about an upcoming chat on Reddit with members of GReAT, who were going to jump on Reddit to answer all of your questions for roughly one, maybe two hours.
Boy, was I wrong. You folks had tons of questions, and the team ended up spending more than four hours answering them (reread that chat here). Let’s just say I know how Gilligan and the crew felt about the Skipper’s “three hour tour.”
As I said, a lot has changed in four years. Then again, some things haven’t: On November 12, we will be hosting AMA with GReAT 2.0, another chance to ask the team absolutely anything.
Wondering what router Costin uses in his home? How Vitaly can play Doom in YARA? Or how Brian is able to wrangle APTs and chickens? Well, your chance to find out is coming.
Join us on November 12 at 1:00 PM GMT, when Costin Raiu, Vitaly Kamluk, Brian Bartholomew, Noushin Shabab, Aseel Kayal, Ivan Kwiatkowski, Maria Namestnikova, Dmitry Bestuzhev, Ariel Jungheit, Dan Demeter, Igor Kuznetsov, and Kurt Baumgartner will field any and all questions in the forum. Be sure to follow us on Twitter, where we will post the link for you to log in to Reddit and ask us anything.
