IAM Adam Kujawa a malware reverse engineer and researcher at Malwarebytes. AMA.
I have been hunting and fighting malware for more than seven years now and my skills are spread out, reaching beyond just malware analysis but also software development and intelligence analysis. I have also given a few talks on malware trends and taught Malware Analysis topics to government and private industry newbies. Prior to joining Malwarebytes as the Lead Malware Intelligence Analyst, I worked for FireEye and numerous government contracting agencies after getting out of the US Navy. I like to pretend fighting malware is like being a Ghostbuster in the Matrix.
I will do my best to answer your questions and if I don't know the answer I will ask someone who does. If you want to know more about how we fight malware than please ask away or have a question about how to get started in this field I would be happy to answer and elaborate.
Update: Well thanks so much for your questions guys! I had a lot of fun and hopefully gave you all the answers you hoped to hear =D. If you want to chat with me more, look me up on Twitter @Kujman5000
