Zero-day Threats and Security Blogging
Dancho used to be a security blogger at ZDNet’s Zero-Day blog for four years, covering topics including the latest cyber threats, cybercrime, malware and botnets, as well as operating system vulnerabilities and exploits.
Danchev writes, “During this period I covered hundreds of high-profile security events, including vulnerabilities affecting Adobe, Apple, Google, and Facebook, as well as botnets and malware affecting hundreds of millions of users. I also was awarded the prestigious Jesse H. Neal award for best blog quite some time ago.
In one post, Dancho discussed how the process of developing and managing such a botnet is entirely automated, efficient, and most importantly - available as a service through a malicious underground Cybercrime-as-a-Service provider.
I’m sure we’ll learn more about how that works in a future report.
