Virus lab: team building

Many of you might wonder how the avast! Virus Lab works. Who are those guys sitting behind the computers and analyzing malicious files? Well let us unveil some of the virus lab secrets and break some stereotypes at the same time:

1. The avast! Virus Lab team doesn’t work in a laboratory. :)

2. Virus analytic professionals are real, nice human beings, not robots. :)

3. Yes, there are also ladies in the virus lab team (although these pictures don’t prove that.) :)

4. They like to have fun and socialize! :)

Proof that they really exist

Here’s a challenge for you – the first person to discover the Director of the avast! Virus Lab will receive a one year free license of avast! Premier! Please respond in the comments section of this blog.

    My guess is the person on the first picture holding something in his right hand and looking at his right.

    Actually, I found one person only shown up once in all those pic… the gentleman with shaven head in picture 1 (at the very back looking to his left) should be the Director of the avast! Virus Lab!

    Looks to me like the second person in the second picture, the person leaning forward to hold the person in front’s hand could be the Director. Thanks AVAST! for all your hard work for us!!!

    Hello everyone. Let me confirm, that Usama was the first one who responded it correctly and he won a license. Don’t give up, you can still win a license, though. Please participate in the AVAST #SecurityTip quiz here:
