This afternoon I had the honor of presenting an introduction to malware analysis talk at the innagural BSidesDC. The goal of the presentation was to give newcomers an idea of where to start in this very interesting field. Here’s the title, abstract, and the slides.
“Malware Analysis: N00b to Ninja in 60 Minutes”
Knowing how to perform basic malware analysis can go a long way in helping infosec analysts do some basic triage to either crush the mundane or recognize when its time to pass the more serious samples on to the the big boys. This presentation covers several analysis environment options and the three quick steps that allows almost anyone with a general technical background to go from n00b to ninja (;)) in no time. Well … maybe not a “ninja” per se but the closing does address follow-on resources on the cheap for those wanting to dive deeper into the dark world of malware analysis.
