Introduction

Advanced Reverse Engineering Malware Training Course with Real World Hands-on Lab

This technically challenging Advanced Reverse Engineering Malware Training course uses the latest malware samples that are the hardest to reverse engineer. You will use every means necessary to defeat all defensive measures employed by malware authors who want to wreak havoc across the internet.

Each malware sample analyzed in class will require first unpacking the sample and removing any software armoring or protection put in place to thwart the security analyst. After the student successfully removes armoring agents they'll have to navigate past several anti-debugging techniques employed by the most elite malware samples today. Finally each sample will required skillful knowledge and usage of OllyDbg or IDA Pro tools with scripting abilities to reverse engineer the destructive code and determine exactly what the malware does.

Duration: 5 days
