Course Overview

  • What are course description?

    Malware Analysis is the study of suspicious Files or programs whose mail intention is usually to compromise the security of a system. The term Malware can be used to simply refer to any program or code that depicts malicious behaviour.This Analysis can be done using two methods namely Static Analysis and Dynamic Analysis. In Most cases we use a Hybrid Approach we can be categorized as the third way but, it is the combination of both Static and Dynamic Analysis. In Static Analysis,we simply observe the static file and its features from the codes to visually find out any malicious modules or dependencies.Although in static analysis, we analyse the IOC found in the code i.e Strings, URL, Dependencies,but again without executing any of them. Most times this doesn’t work with smart modern malwares which only show their actual intentions while execution. In Dynamic Analysis, we observe the behaviour of the File by running it in an Sandboxed Environment which doesn’t hampers or damages our original system.Sandboxed Environments gives the malwares the actual environment that a software expects to run on but, beside it notes and visualizes the actions done by the code to the investigators.

  • COURSE OVERVIEW

    : Malware Analysis is a skill that enables you to investigate any suspicious applications or source codes that are planted by hackers to compromise the security of a system. The term Malware can be used to simply refer to any program or code that depicts malicious behaviour.In this course we start with the basic concepts of Reverse Engineering,then move to analysis techniques that are Static,Dynamic and Hybrid Analysis, we discuss several persistence, maneuvering techniques .We then move to malicious document analysis as that is the way by which people are tricked by hackers to execute a malware in their system.We also cover case studies as well as demonstration of several malwares and perform analysis of Live Malwares to give our students a real time scenario of Malware Analysis.
