Hi, I am Yarik. I am currently located in San Francisco Bay Area focusing on Anti-Abuse projects.
Before that, I spent 4 years at Google protecting users from malware, spam, phishing and blackmarket activities. I also was a part of the team which produced a first successful SHA1 collision. This project was recognized with BlackHat 2017 Pwnie Award and the Best CRYPTO Paper.
Long before that I spent 2 years in the Empire State doing my Master’s degree at Stony Brook University. In my spare time, I enjoy hiking, backpacking, biking and doing road trips.
