Sad News Regarding a Malwarebytes Employee

It is with a heavy heart that I announced the passing of a valued team member. Matt Russo passed away on Wednesday evening. Out of concern for his family’s privacy, I decided to hold off on the announcement until today.

I personally hired Matt to head up our social media push, including Facebook and Twitter. Matt always had a great personality and I enjoyed working with him directly. He will be missed by the entire Malwarebytes team.
