I attended the BSides Austin 2015 conference this week and gave a talk about the basics of malware analysis called “Malware Analysis 101.”
I had a lot of great feedback from people about the presentation and a few folks asked me to host it online, so here it is.
I created a slide that acts as a kind of “cheat sheet” for the talk which lists the tools that I mention along with methodology and a bunch of useful resources for people who are interested in malware analysis. So I am going to post that particular slide here and a link to download the presentation.
Thanks and enjoy!
