Reverse engineering already sounds like black magic, when in reality it’s just lot’s of practice and strong foundations in computer science concepts. You might not always remember what you learned in computer science classes or understood it enough to actually apply it to the real world. The best way to learn is by getting hands on practice. In this workshop, the main take away is learning how to set analysis goals. By using tools and computer science concepts you can work step by step to those analysis goals. This workshop provides the fundamentals of reversing engineering (RE) Windows malware using a hands-on experience with RE tools and techniques. Attendees will be introduced to RE terms and processes, followed by creating a basic x86 assembly program, and reviewing RE tools and malware techniques. The workshop will conclude by attendees performing hands-on malware analysis that consists of Triage, Static, and Dynamic analysis.
