Cybersecurity researcher / computer science professor profiled in Voice of San Diego

Computer science professor Stefan Savage is profiled today in the Voice of San Diego. The story by David Washburn highlights the systems security research lead by Savage and fellow Jacobs School computer science professor Geoff Voelker.
From the Voice of San Diego story:
Long considered a top cyber-security expert, Savage leads a team at the Collaborative Center for Internet Epidemiology and Defenses that last year infiltrated the infamous Storm botnet, which victimized millions of people through internet spam scams. And last month the center, which is a joint UCSD and UC-Berkeley effort, was awarded a five-year, $7 million grant from the U.S. Navy's research arm to study botnets and the threats they pose to national security.
