[Yes, I know this isn’t up-to-date or complete by a long way: I’ve been a little busy with other projects, but I will get back to it sooner rather than later. Sooner, of course, is a relative term. ;-) DH]

Update (16th September 2011): I notice there’s also a partial list of my publications and some other stuff I haven’t gone into here on the Wikipedia page at Thank you, whoever put that together (nice job!): I’ll probably contribute some content in due course.

Avien Malware Defense Guide

This exciting publishing project was undertaken jointly by AVIEN, the Anti-Virus Information Exchange Network, and AVIEWS, the Anti-Virus Information & Early Warning System, and published by Syngress. It was reviewed for Virus Bulletin by Martin Overton, and that review is available here.    

Please excuse the high PR content that follows.

This book is a guide to managing malicious software and related security issues within the enterprise.

Its uniqueness lies in its partnership between highly experienced, highly qualified corporate security practitioners and the anti-malware research community, as represented by AVIEN.    


The book therefore reflects the expertise of security administrators and managers at the customer coalface and the technical and developmental expertise of both industry and independent researchers.    

You can get the full PR blast at the Elsevier site.
