About the Course

Malicious software, or malware, is typically delivered over a network and is designed to cause disruption to a computer, client, server, or network. Disruptions can include leaked private information, unauthorized access to information or systems, blocked user access, interference with security and privacy, or numerous other variations of attacking systems. Malware analysis dissects malware to gather information about the malware functionality, how the system was compromised so that you can defend against future attacks. Assembly is a low-level language that is used to communicate with the machine. Assembly programming is writing human-readable machine codes or machine instructions that are directly read by the computer. All high-level languages compiled programs like C or C++ can be broken down, analyzed, and understood using Assembly language with the help of a debugger. This process is known as reverse engineering. Understanding what an executable program does is easy if you have direct access to the source code. But if not, such as the case with malware, learning Assembly can be helpful. In this course, through video demonstrations, hands-on reverse engineering, and capture-the-flag type activities, you will be introduced to the processes and methods for conducting malware analysis of different file types. You will analyze native executable files, and analyze popular files like PowerShell, JavaScripts, and Microsoft Office documents. Then you will learn the fundamentals of Assembly language, basic Win32 Assembly programming concepts, and how Reverse Engineers use Assembly to analyze malware....

Although the course covers all aspects of Malware Analysis, it should also provide more in-depth coverage of reverse engineering and assembly language.

It is an excellent course for anyone who wants to start analyzing malware. In some videos, the professor accelerates a lot and you cannot watch the steps he takes. I would have loved to watch it extend the use of REMnux. Excellent course!

Disappointing. Only good thing is the CTF-style exercises. The material is not very good and contains errors. Communication is bad.
