Book Description :

Malware Forensics: Investigating and Analyzing Malicious Code covers the complete process of responding to a malicious code incident. Written by authors who have investigated and prosecuted federal malware cases, this book deals with the emerging and evolving field of live forensics, where investigators examine a computer system to collect and preserve critical live data that may be lost if the system is shut down. Unlike other forensic texts that discuss live forensics on a particular operating system, or in a generic context, this book emphasizes a live forensics and evidence collection methodology on both Windows and Linux operating systems in the context of identifying and capturing malicious code and evidence of its effect on the compromised system. It is the first book detailing how to perform live forensic techniques on malicious code. The book gives deep coverage on the tools and techniques of conducting runtime behavioral malware analysis (such as file, registry, network and port monitoring) and static code analysis (such as file identification and profiling, strings discovery, armoring/packing detection, disassembling, debugging), and more. It explores over 150 different tools for malware incident response and analysis, including forensic tools for preserving and analyzing computer memory. Readers from all educational and technical backgrounds will benefit from the clear and concise explanations of the applicable legal case law and statutes covered in every chapter. In addition to the technical topics discussed, this book also offers critical legal considerations addressing the legal ramifications and requirements governing the subject matter. This book is intended for system administrators, information security professionals, network personnel, forensic examiners, attorneys, and law enforcement working with the inner-workings of computer memory and malicious code. * Winner of Best Book Bejtlich read in 2008! * http://taosecurity.blogspot.com/2008/12/best-book-bejtlich-read-in-2008.html * Authors have investigated and prosecuted federal malware cases, which allows them to provide unparalleled insight to the reader. * First book to detail how to perform "live forensic" techniques on malicous code. * In addition to the technical topics discussed, this book also offers critical legal considerations addressing the legal ramifications and requirements governing the subject matter

Book Description :

Career opportunities for malware analysts are growing at a fast pace due to the evolving nature of cyber threats as well as the necessity to counter them. However, employers are often unable to hire analysts fast though due to a lack of the required skillset. Hence, the primary purpose of the thesis is to conduct a gap analysis between the binary analysis skills taught in universities with those that the recruiters are looking for. Malware can be analyzed using three main types of tools and techniques: high-level profiling, static analysis, and dynamic analysis. These methods provide detailed information about the functionality and behavior of the binary executable. To determine the relevant courses taught in universities, three different set of universities were used which consisted of the NSA accredited colleges, top universities in computer science, and top cybersecurity colleges across the world. Based on the analysis, it can be observed that there are few universities that offer cybersecurity programs, among which very few offer a course in malware analysis. To shortlist the skills necessary for career opportunities in the field of malware analysis, a list of job descriptions from three employment-related social networking sites: LinkedIn, Indeed, and Glassdoor was collected. From the inventory of job postings, it can be noticed that most of the openings require experience with malware and reverse engineering tools. The dataset of university courses was compared and paralleled with the dataset of job descriptions using three analysis methods: LDAviz tool, a word cloud generator, and a pie chart model. Based on the study, it can be concluded that though there are very few universities that teach cyber security analysis as part of their curriculum, they are exceptionally doing well in meeting the current needs of the industry. The only exception is a lack of coverage of topics like threat analysis, incident response, and computer forensics. However, it would be highly beneficial if all the schools could expand their programs and offerings in the field of Malware analysis so that young talent could easily fill these roles.
