Biography

Although Viral Dragon joined September 30, 2008, he lurked in the background of the forum for about a year prior, closer to when Hack Forums first opened. He felt compelled to officially register after he saw a topic in which a user was getting what he felt was bad advice. Since then, he has kept a constant presence on the forum, with his main goal always about educating other users in various fields of hacking and computer-related topics. Viral Dragon has been a member several groups, as well as leader of some. His past leadership positions have included the groups Reverence, Eminence, Wifi Gang (for a short period of time after Eminence changed its name), Root, Coders and Reviewers. His leadership has been notably strict, not letting members go inactive or sit in a group without giving some form of contribution. He went inactive and was removed as leader before Root was disbanded and the leaders were banned. He was also working to revamp the Reviewers group as it was closed by Omniscient. He currently only holds leadership in two groups, as the leader of the Wiki division of the Writ3rs group and the programming and security sector in Complexity. On September 9, 2013, Viral Dragon was made a Mentor. Viral Dragon's personal life does cross into the forum on occasion. In December of 2012, he fell ill to the point of needing hospitalization. This interfered with several of his leadership positions, including the Writ3rs, whose Wiki team saw a temporary change in leadership while he was away. Although he went inactive in posting, he says he "kept tabs" on what was happening around the forum. His wife iceybunneh is also a member of Hack Forums and they have been seen posting together in the Innuendo section. Other than what he and iceybunneh mention about their personal life, not much is known about him. In the fall of 2013, rumors were spread over Tiny Chat and other venues that Viral Dragon was an undercover FBI agent, a title that is not looked upon with favor among the general Hack Forums community. This led to numerous members asking Viral Dragon for confirmation. His answer has always been the same: he doesn't work for them in any way, shape or form. Omniscient has also stated that the rumors are of no importance to him.
