Sunbelt Software reinforces CounterSpy research team with the addition of leading expert Patrick Jordan (aka Â?webhelperÂ?)

Sunbelt Software, a leading provider of Windows security solutions, is pleased to announce that renowned spyware researcher, Patrick Jordan, has joined Sunbelt Software as a Senior Spyware Research Analyst.

Jordan, also known as “webhelper” to the antispyware community, will provide research expertise to help identify and remove some of the most difficult spyware strains such as VX2/Transponder and CoolWebSearch.

Jordan brings a plethora of technology and research experience to Sunbelt, having managed and participated in many of the security forums dedicated to spyware research, detection and removal, including his own webhelper4u.com site. His experience in revealing the malicious mechanisms that transponder spyware uses to propagate itself has been beneficial to the antispyware community, particularly exposing practices by spyware authors that develop applications such as CoolWebSearch.

His expert research over the last several years on adware and spyware provides a firm foundation for accurate and reliable research testing that ultimately enables Sunbelt to continue to provide one of the best spyware threat databases in the industry.

“Patrick understands the issues and challenges that computer users face every day when it comes to spyware,” said Alex Eckelberry, president of Sunbelt Software. “A walking encyclopedia of knowledge on some of the most pernicious spyware threats, he is an extraordinarily valuable addition to our research team.”

“Being a part of a rapidly expanding security software developer and practicing spyware research is exciting,” Jordan said. “There's definitely a buzz in the industry right now about Sunbelt, and I'm thrilled to be a part of it.”
