Hi, I’m Michael Maltsev, also known as m417z. I’m interested in reverse engineering and vulnerability research of any kind, from the low level world of operating systems to the high level world of front-end and browsers.

Some of the things I did



  • Paged Out! #2: C as a portable assembly - Porting 32-bit assembly code to 64-bit (PDF, page 8).


  • Windhawk - The customization marketplace for Windows programs.
  • 7+ Taskbar Tweaker - A Windows taskbar customization tool.
  • Unchecky - A tool for Windows that automatically unchecks unrelated offers to keep potentially unwanted programs out of the computer. Was acquired by Reason Cybersecurity.
  • Ramen Software - More software for Windows.
