Course overview

Any program that runs can be disassembled, but that doesn’t mean it’s going to be easy. Seven videos take you through the different ways malware can fight back against disassembly, debugging and being trapped in virtual machines, including time-wasting use of breakpoints, checking flags to detect the presence of a debugger or a virtual machine, setting timing checks, calling botnets to DoS the machine, Red Pill/No Pill techniques and more.
