NEWS FROM THE LAB - Wednesday, April 11, 2007

Weblog Q&A Posted by Sean @ 17:11 GMT

First Question:
Do You have a virus lab in the USA or Canada?

We do have lab facilities in San Jose, California if needed. Currently our shifts are handled in Malaysia and Finland.

Second Question:
Does the weblog team just cover those who analyze malware or does it cover those involved in researching and developing new products, and those involved in producing the software? … Is it true that you have to be a heavy rock musician or heavy rock fan to work in the labs?!

The weblog team members work in the Response and Research Labs – our product software is developed and designed by other teams within F-Secure. The internal components of some of those products may be the results of research. So some things are born here, but then they are in the hands of other teams.

Do you have to be a Heavy Rock fan? No. But it certainly doesn't hurt.

Third Question:
There have been multiple questions regarding our RSS and we want to update the feed, but before we do, we'd like to poll you on what software you use:


Our March 1st Poll is still open for any that would like to submit questions. We still have some from March left to answer, but welcome more in the meantime.
