Advanced Reverse Engineering Malware Training

Advanced Reverse Engineering Malware Training:

Advanced Reverse Engineering Malware Training course with detailed hands-on (Online, Onsite, and Classroom Live!)

Because modern malware makes use of sophisticated obfuscation techniques, you need to have specific reversing skills in the deconstruction of various x86 assembler obfuscation tricks used by malware in order to be an expert malware reverser. This four-day Advanced Reverse Engineering Malware Training course bridges the gap between reversing “vanilla” compiler-generated code and the nontrivial, complex code created by expert malware authors.

Modern malware typically is developed with some measure of Command and Control (C& C) communication capabilities. The C&C protocol can be used to maintain a botnet, deliver package updates, send commands, and steal data from compromised machines. Understanding and reversing the underlying C& C protocol is essential to understanding the intention, functionality, and potentially the identity of the malware author. In the Advanced Reverse Engineering Malware Training course, you will learn how to reverse these C& C protocols from live malware examples that are currently in circulation.

Reversing obfuscated malware in some cases must be done programmatically. This requires you to understand how to use specialized plugins for IDA as well as other malware-specific tools in order to de-obfuscate various portions of the code under analysis. In other cases, hours or days of manual work can be saved by learning the proper use of a specific reversing tool.
