This one-day training is structured similarly to a standard analysis workflow. It starts with identifying and unpacking malware, including basic and sophisticated packers, while tackling common scenarios encountered in the process. Students will learn to work through defeating API hashing and string encryption within malware, leveraging plugins, and building their own custom tooling with IDA Python. From there, the session will conclude with gaining additional insights into analyzing further advanced malware techniques such as AV evasion, anti-analysis tactics, and advanced injection methods.
