Yes, that is my Trademarked name and the legally-registered DBA for my company since 2002. I've been a computer professional since 1966, so I have lots of scars! Having worked in the PC arena since 1982, I developed a specialty in malware in 2002. That decision was triggered by my encounter with the Klez virus on a client's infected computers.
Shortly after that I started presenting seminars on the threat of malware to non-technical computer users. A radio talk-show host, "The High-Tech Texan," had me as a guest on his show and dubbed me "The Virus Doctor," and I proceeded to Trademark that designation.
In 2005 I wrote the IPPY Award-winning, best-selling book Bug-Free Computing: Stop Viruses, Squash Worms, and Smash Trojan Horses. It was updated and reprinted in 2006, but hasn't been refreshed since then. Now it's more of a credibility piece to demonstrate the fact that I can talk a lot about malware if asked.
In 2009 I developed a one-day workshop teaching IT support techs how to quickly and effectively remove malware from infected computers. I've conducted some 50 of those workshops since then, with right around 200 alumni in 6 states thus far. I present introductory webinars on a regular basis and invite any interested tech to sign up for one.
I reference Bleeping Computer in several aspects of my workshops and have a high regard for the information provided on this site. If you would like to read some of my blog posts and other malware-related opinions, you may check out my web site, www.thevirusdoc.com.
I look forward to contributing to this group in any way I can.
