Just a quick note for anyone that wants to catch up next week at hacker summer camp. Instead of BlackHat I’ve opted for BSidesLV again this year at the Tuscany. This will be my third time attending and I continue to enjoy the smaller and more intimate environment. There I’ll also be giving a talk on how to take up some basic malware analysis. I hope to spend the rest of my time catching up with old friends, making new ones, and helping the organizers out where I can.
Below is the abstract of the talk I’ll be giving on Tuesday, August 5 from 4:00 to 5:00 in the Common Ground track. Stop on by if you have a chance … I might even release a few goodies if I can get my hands on some cheap 50G USB drives. 😉
“Malware Analysis 101 – 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 big boys. This presentation covers several analysis environments 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.
After BSidesLV I’ll be transferring from the Tuscany over to the Rio for Defcon. No speaking gigs but I plan on just enjoying the sights and sounds as usual. I might have some time to pull together some posts on talks I’m attending but once again hope to help out in some way.
