Session 7 – Practical ReversingPart II – Unpacking Malware

In reverse engineering understanding cryptographic functions and packers are the two most challenging and sophisticated tasks. In real life virtually all malwares use some form of packing so understanding packing/unpacking is one of the most important task in malware analysis. Check the reference section for additional material. We highly recommend Lena151 (see reference) material for […]


Session 4 – Assembly Programming Basics

While Analyzing the malwares most of the time we don’t have its source code, so in order to understand their functionality one has to debug/disassemble the binary (executable, dll etc.), Understanding the assembly language will help you build a high level logic while your are debugging/disassembling the malware sample.
