If you are completely new to reverse engineering and malware analysis, then this course is for you. I will take you from zero to proficient level in reverse engineering and analyzing malware. You will learn using plenty of practical walk-throughs. We will learn the basics first then gradually proceed to more advanced topics. All the needed tools will be introduced and explained. By the end of this course, you will have the fundamentals of malware analysis under your belt to further your studies in this field. Even if you do not intend to take up malware analysis as a career, still the knowledge and skills gained in reverse engineering and analysis would be beneficial to you to reverse software as well.
Everything is highly practical. No boring theory or lectures. More like walk-throughs which you can replicate and follow along. We will use tools like tridnet, bintext, pestudio, cff explorer, regshot, procdot, fakenet, wireshark, process monitor, process hacker, xdbg, Ghidra and more...
