This course is a one day introduction to reverse engineering malware in the Linux environment. Delegates will be guided through the entire process gaining new skills and experience reverse engineering malicious software with an insight in to the techniques used by malware to spread and infect other machines and devices and obfuscate their activity.

Delegates will gain hands on experience using decompilers, debuggers, network traffic analysis tools, hex editors and memory analysis tools.

This course is aimed at an introductory level to those wishing to learn both the basics and advanced techniques used to reverse engineer software. This course would be ideal for incident responders who want to take a more proactive role in analyzing identified threats.

This course will be suitable for delegates interested in the SANS Institute course FOR610: Reverse-Engineering Malware: Malware Analysis Tools and Techniques.
