Marc-Etienne M.Léveillé

Senior Malware Researcher, ESET

Marc-Etienne M.Léveillé 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. M.Léveillé focused his research on the reverse engineering of 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. While still keeping eyes open on crimeware, M.Léveillé now focuses on the analysis of targeted attacks. When he’s not one of the organizers, he loves participating in CTF competitions like a partying gentleman. Outside the cyberspace, M.Léveillé plays the clarinet and reads comics.
