Mingming Zha 查明明
I am a Ph.D. student in Computer Science at Indiana University Bloomington advised by Prof. XiaoFeng Wang.
My work has been published in top-tier security conferences (such as IEEE S&P, CCS, USENIX Security, and NDSS), and has generated real-world impact as countermeasures.
My main research interest is Mobile Security, Program Analysis, and AI Security. Here is my CV.
Mar 2022: Zoom awarded us $250 for discovering vulnerabilities in Zoom.
Jul 2021: Slack awarded us $1,000 for discovering vulnerabilities in Slack.
Jul 2021: Rocket.Chat acknowledged our reported vulnerability on Rocket.Chat.
May 2021: Cliq acknowledged our reported vulnerability and also gives us a bounty.
