General Information

Currently, I am a master student at the Secure Systems Lab. My main research interests are software and network security.


I'm working on my master thesis. The topic is web browser security (smart fuzziing). During my research I found a vulnerability in the Mac OS Carbon Core library (see the advisory).

A former project was about detecting emulators (e.g. QEMU) and virtual machine monitors (see the paper).

I am also the main developer of the AntiPhish for IE project. This Internet Explorer plugin (BHO) is a client sided approach to prevent phishing attacks. This project was inspired by the AntiPhish project written by Engin Kirda and Christopher Kruegel.
