This isn't a message I wish I had to send, but I know how much Malwarebytes and the anti-malware community meant to SpySentinel:

Earlier this week, Matt "SpySentinel" Russo passed away. He really was the one of the nicest guys in the world, and the victim of an unfair crime.

I am deeply sorry for anyone who was friends with him. I just wanted to let you all know what happened to our friend Matt.

He was very involved with spyware removal and highly regarded at Malwarebytes forum, as well as several other forums.

Those who visit some of these forums may know him very well also, as he was always helpful and, as with many of us, regarded the fight against Malware as very important.

A page has been started at MBAM General Chat forum (now it is several pages long) in his honour -
NOTE : I was not the original composer, but I wished to spread the word to others in the industry -
