mlaIn February, this blog and its author were recognized for three separate awards. At the RSA Security conference in San Francisco, was voted the “Most Educational Security Blog” at the Security Bloggers Meetup (for the second year in a row). The judges at the meetup also gave the honor of the “Best Blog Post of the Year,” for my reporting on the Adobe breach.

Separately, I am honored to have received the Mary Litynsky Award for Protecting the Online Community, a lifetime achievement recognition given by the Messaging, Malware and Mobile Anti-Abuse Working Group. M3AAWG’s announcement about the award is here. Past recipients of this award are listed here.

    Congratulations Mr Krebs. Such accolades are richly deserved. I hope that they more than compensate you for the aggro from criminals whose attentions you help to protect us from.

    Naturally, Krebs has to stroke his own ego and tell us.

    1. Mica

      Ah-ha! Envy…the green-eyed monster that mocks the food it eats.

      Obviously, you can’t hold a candle to our consummate hero – Mr. Brian Krebs.

    Congrats! I read your emails assiduously. Now you’ve gotten some well-deserved recognition– just don’t go “corporate” on us.

    In other words, keep up the good work!

    To say that these are well-deserved acknowledgements of both the integrity and the vital importance of your efforts is among the understatements of the year (or decade, even)! Congratulations, and I hope there will be many other awards down the line….
