Hi. GarWarner formerly of CastleCops checking in to see what goes on over here at BleepingComputer.

As some of you know already, I'm a very active anti-phisher, and a somewhat active blogger at http://garwarner.blogspot.com/

You may not know that I'm the Director of Research in Computer Forensics at the University of Alabama at Birmingham, where I teach in the Computer Science and Justice Science departments. I have a team of ten researchers who are working on the UAB Spam Data Mine as well as our other anti-spam, anti-phishing, and malware analysis projects. Our newest research areas also include social analysis of criminal hacking and malware groups, and other Cyber Intelligence initiatives.

I'm not sure how active I'll be here . . . but as I was surveying the other "security super communities", like yourselves, GeeksToGo, and MajorGeeks, this seemed to be one of the important ones to understand. I'm sure some of my students will be joining here as well.

Having grandkids is God's way of giving you a 2nd chance because you were too busy working your butt off the 1st time around
Do not send me PMs with problems that should be posted in the forums. Keep it in the forums, so everyone benefits

You and your students are more than welcome here at BC. I think everyone will benefit.
