Our old friend, companion, antagonist, driver, and general ally veruus passed away. He fought against Leukemia, which had gone undiagnosed for a few years. Extensive treatment followed, and a bone marrow transplant was scheduled before he succumbed to the condition.
Ben attended many Black Hat and DEF CON conferences and lived between Utah and Florida.
Most of us can hope to be as memorable as he was, for better and worse.
