SophosLabs blogger goes the extra mile

Zoe and hair

Many you of you will have read the regular postings on the SophosLabs blog from Zoe.

She has become our resident expert on all matters regarding malware and internet gaming, as well as covering subjects like World of Warcraft in-game spam, safe surfing on the Sony PlayStation 3 games console, and criminals taking advantage of Manchester United’s football tournament success.

As well as fighting malware on our behalf she is now also helping her mother go through chemotherapy.

Zoe’s chosen way of supporting her mother is to shave her head and raise money for a Cancer charity. It is clearly a daunting prospect for a woman to lose her hair so we are all supporting her in this generous act.

As Zoe herself says, “Hair loss is probably the scariest part of chemo, especially for women. Blokes can look great with shaved heads whereas women just tend to look wrong.”

She has promised there will be pictures!
