Introduction to Malware Analysis

How can we make sense of the malicious software discovered during incident response or a forensic investigation? In this online seminar, Lenny Zeltser introduces a practical and systemic approach to examining malware. He will discuss freely-available tools useful for performing static, behavioral and code analysis, making this topic accessible even to technologists with a limited exposure to programming concepts. The session will make use of several real-world malware samples to explain the core concepts and demonstrate the tools. Session participants will learn the fundamentals and associated tools to get started with malware analysis.

Security incident responders benefit from knowing how to reverse-engineer malware, because this process helps in assessing the event’s scope, severity, and repercussions. It also assists in containing the incident and in planning recovery steps. Those who perform forensic investigations also benefit from mastering this topic, because they learn how to understand key characteristic of malware present on compromised systems. Lenny Zeltser has written many articles on these topics and teaches a malware analysis course at SANS Institute.
