One of the best security books around
on 4 March 2012
If you know a little bit of coding, this book will have you on your feet and dissecting malware confidently and effectively (and most of all, safely) within days of picking it up.
The book takes you though collecting samples, to static analysis, dynamic analysis, PDFs, shellcode, automating analysis and setting up a malware lab. Excellent stuff - just indispensable.
The scripted samples are mostly in Python which is a nice language to pick up (I don't 'know' Python myself but still managed to customise the scripts nicely) and the book has a website where the code even now appears to be well maintained.
I don't generally give any book five stars but this one deserved it. Well done gentlemen!
