Project description

Now that you have all the necessary skills required to reverse engineer, put those skills to the test! This project involves utilizing skills you’ve learned to analyze a real-world malware sample. There are five challenges to complete. Each challenge requires you to find a specific piece of information about the malware sample through analysis and reverse engineering. You will use tools such as the SysInternals Suite, PEview, CFF Explorer, IDA, INetSim, FakeDNS and Wireshark to find the information for each challenge.
