I am Mikko Hypponen, a computer security expert. Ask me anything!
Hi all! This is Mikko Hypponen.
I've been working with computer security since 1991 and I've tracked down various online attacks over the years. I've written about security, privacy and online warfare for magazines like Scientific American and Foreign Policy. I work as the CRO of F-Secure in Finland.
I guess my talks are fairly well known. I've done the most watched computer security talk on the net. It's the first one of my three TED Talks:
Here's a talk from two weeks ago at Slush: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=u93kdtAUn7g
Here's a video where I tracked down the authors of the first PC virus: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lnedOWfPKT0
I spoke yesterday at TEDxBrussels and I was pretty happy on how the talk turned out. The video will be out this week.
I gotta go and catch a plane, thanks for all the questions! With over 3000 comments in this thread, I'm sorry I could only answer a small part of the questions.
See you on Twitter!
Brand new video of my talk at TEDxBrussels has just been released: http://youtu.be/QKe-aO44R7k
