Living and feeding in the shadows with only his own company, rotting into a solitary of hollow existence, Kris (who actually is a gray mouse, a.k.a. nezumi [japanese], a.k.a. souriz [french], a.k.a achbar/עכבר [Hebrew]) slept, until he had found out this way leads to nowhere. onliness seems like a good idea, until you realize you’re going to spend it alone and a sort of death will happen.

That in the end we are alone, and there is nothing but the cold, dark wasteland of eternity. just the endless procession of days, months… years. out of the cold, dark wasteland of eternity, kris only have himself. and his computers (six boxes). and telescopes (three). and the sky with thousands stars. the dark and clean sky of the far-far-far from civilization place hosts souriz’s den (the lab). disassembling, debugging, reversing, kind of “this is not something I _do_ this is something I _am_”. sort of “always seeks the answer, but only fins more questions”.

Ever felt a great depression? “the pulse” film describes it: “…like a bullet from behind, something dark, something coming through me, so fast, just like an arrow and the last thing you ever want is for it to get to you. I don’t know what it is, but it grabs ahold, it takes your will to live. everything that made you, you is gone. you don’t want to talk, you don’t want to move. you’re a shell. it spreads all over your body, and your body dies right out from under you, and the next thing you know, you’re just a pile of ash!” – this is exactly what I was feeling for years. but… suddenly something has happened. something has changed. kris is remaining in the shadows, but now it’s different. this is why I’ve decided to appear on the conferences.

Well, who I am? um, honestly, I don’t know. had I self-identify it would be my job. no, not the reversing. this is just a hobby. I’m unemployed or self-employed or… whatever else. I used to refer myself as an independent consultant, writer, journalist, free-lancer, etc. I’ve published a lot of books and going to publish much more. I love to share my knowledge with people, this is why I’m writing books, lecture RE-courses for a free and do many other things.

Currently, I’m working (remotely) for Endeavor Security, Inc (a major signature provider) where I’ve met the best RE-team and found almost unrestricted freedom, which is very rare in nowadays business world.

OK, unofficial part is over. time to be more ceremonial. Well, the style of writing has been turned to the formal channel, where Kris Kaspersky is 32 years old unmarried man, who has over 15 years of software engineering and reverse engineering experience. He has published more than 20 books about system programming and has been translated to English, Chinese, and Polish. He has published more than 300 articles for magazines print. Kris’ most recent books are:

    Code Optimization;
    CD Cracking Uncovered;
