About

Independent security researcher. My passion this millennium is called web-security and in particular, browser vulnerabilities. I love to find security-bugs on my free time (which is never enough) because it’s just fun for me and of course, because I would like to help companies make a change.

Every day I jump out of bed, prepare breakfast for my wife and kids and get started with life. Working with computers has never been work for me but pure joy. How lucky. Thanks a lot, nature and randomness.

My goal with this blog is to share what I learn hopefully motivating other researchers to never give up and keep trying, playing. I owe everything I learned to the generous minds around the globe, who continuously publish their research in books, tutorials or just blogs. The security world is simply fascinating. Well, the world is fascinating.

1984-1993: TI-99, Commodore 64, Amiga 500, Amiga 1000: phreaking, cracking. Wonderful times.

1994-2000: No more phreaking (thanks Internet) but kept cracking dongles for fun and profit while I started playing with web technologies.

2001-2005: Tons of fun on the web with browser vulnerabilities.

2006-Present: found 524 vulnerabilities in web browsers (~512 were patched), 11 in browser plugins (all patched) and 58 in desktop applications.

I love to cooperate with people that never gives up. If you tried really hard to solve a particular hacking/security problem without success, tweet me and I’ll do my best to help you.

 

Have a nice day!
