Welcome to Malware Mayhem, a blog dedicated to sending malware operations to meet Mr. Mayhem. In the series "Sons of Anarchy", Mr. Mayhem personifies death. As a huge Sons of Anarchy fan and a malware analyst, it made sense to incorporate the two in the name of this blog.

My name is Chase Sims and I've been in malware/cyber community for the past 9 years. In 2004, I downloaded my first piece of malware. It was a RAT named "get_low.mp3.exe" that I downloaded off Kazaa. The only way I knew to stop it was to shut off the modem and reimage the computer. That mistake ignited a passion for combatting malware that has led me to where I am today.

I worked for a radio station in high school and college doing IT work which exposed me to malware on some of the machines. Although my analysis was primarily for eradication, it piqued my interest to begin researching on my own time. In 2011, I joined the Marine Corps and served in the intelligence/cyber field for 6 years. During my time in the Marines, I attended the NSA's prestigious Joint Cyber Analysis Course and earned the coveted MOS of 2611(Cryptologic Digital Network Analyst). After my tour in the Marines, I joined PhishMe as a Sr. Threat Analyst where I'm exposed to many different samples of malware from our customers across many different industries. In July 2017, I was promoted to take on the additional duties of Phishing Defense Team Lead for the US team.
