Hey! I am Marc-Alexandre Montpas, welcome to my place. 🙂
I’m currently working as a Vulnerability Researcher, leading the Vulnerability Research Team at Sucuri. My interests are vasts, ranging from Web Application Security and Reverse Engineering to OS Design and Implementation. You’ll generally find me hacking stuffs at Security CTFs (Capture The Flag) or disclosing vulnerabilities in popular products for the fun of it.
