A "reformed" virus writer, who goes by the aliases Black Wolf and Stormbringer, is seeking a job in the anti-virus industry.
Michael Ellison, a former member of virus writing group Phalcon/SKISM (Smart Kids Into Sick Methods), is responsible for writing code for viruses, including the GV family of viruses.
Ellison has agreed to give a speech at next month's Virus Bulletin conference in San Francisco. At the event he will explain the reason for his change of heart and why he feels he is now employable by the very industry he used to work against.
But one company which won't be asking to see Ellison's CV is Dr Solomon's.
Graham Cluley, senior technology consultant at the anti-virus firm, said: "You'd have to be completely crazy to employ a virus author. You could never trust them, and I've never seen a virus that doesn't have bugs in it - most of them are lousy programmers. Any company that employs him would be ostracised by the whole anti-virus industry."
