About Me & Disclaimer

Good day! My name is Bart.

I spend time researching, analyzing and reversing malware. I analyse all flavors of malware, independent of operating system or language they are written in.

Alternatively, upload the file on your website of choosing, and send me the download link.

Feel free to contact me on Twitter,via the contact form on the right of this blog, or via email.

If you want to send me an encrypted email, you can find my PGP key on Keybase.
