About Us

Malicious Life by Cybereason exposes the human and financial powers operating under the surface that make cybercrime what it is today.

Malicious Life explores the people and the stories behind the cybersecurity industry and its evolution.

Host Ran Levi interviews hackers and industry experts, discussing the hacking culture of the 1970s and 80s, the subsequent rise of viruses in the 1990s and today’s advanced cyber threats.

Ran discusses spam, and how it transformed cybercrime from a small-time, opportunistic crime – to a bonafide business model. He’ll talk about botnets, DDoS attacks, and hacktivists – and finally, about the latest headline-grabbing cyber-threat: ransomware.
