Marc-Etienne is a malware researcher at ESET since 2012. He specializes in malware attacking unusual platforms, whether it’s fruity hardware or software from south pole birds. Lately, Marc-Etienne was mostly reverse engineering server-side malware to discover their inner working and operation strategy. His research led to the publication of the Operation Windigo white paper that won Virus Bulletin’s Péter Szőr Award for best research paper in 2014.
Outside his day job, Marc-Etienne enjoys designing challenges for the NorthSec CTF competition. He is also a co-organiser of the MontréHack monthly event. He presented at multiple conferences including CSAW:Threads, CARO Workshop and Linuxcon Europe. When he’s not one of the organizer, he loves participating in CTF competitions like a partying gentleman. Outside the cyberspace, Marc-Etienne plays the clarinet and read comics
