It’s been quite some time since I last posted a quality blog post regarding my ex-employer CBS Interactive’s ZDNet where I used to work as a Security Blogger for ZDNet’s Zero Day throughout 2008-2013 and I wanted to take the time and effort to say thanks to my Editor-in-Chief including Editorial Director – Larry Dignan and David Grober who provided editorial guidance including the publishing of the original post regarding my disappearance circa 2010 including the search for me.

In this post I’ll summarize my blogging activity at ZDNet’s Zero Day blog throughout 2008-2013 providing my readers with the necessary data information and knowledge to stay ahead of current and emerging threats.
