Bogdan Botezatu is living his second childhood at Bitdefender as senior e-threat analyst. When he is not documenting sophisticated strains of malware or writing removal tools, he teaches extreme sports such as surfing the web without protection or rodeo with wild Trojan horses. He believes that antimalware research is like working for a secret agency: you need to stay focused at all times, but you get all the glory when you catch the bad guys.
