At the end of the workshop, it was intended that participants understand the following:
– Today, criminals are using novel techniques to bypass AV detecions
– Manual debugging must be used to unpack malware (a hard work that is needed to reveal the original malware code)
– Dissecting malware allows us to understand criminals’ modus operandi
– Manual analysis is always required to reveal FUD malware
Presentation slides are available below. Have a nice study and any doubt, please find me.
Once again, thanks.
