Knowing how to perform basic malware analysis can go a long way in helping infosec analysts do some fundamental triage to either crush the mundane or recognize when its time to pass the more serious samples on to the the big boys. This course, based on grecs’ popular Malware Analysis 101 – N00b to Ninja talks, 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.
