Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This is the most riveting and easy to understand book. Yes, the topic is demanding, but this takes you step by step through the code, with amazing diagrams and visual guides. There's no waffle either.

Currently working my way through this book. It progresses at a good pace and explains a complex subject well. The authors clearly have a wealth of practical experience in this area and this comes through in the explanations, examples and labs. If you're looking to get into malware analysis, this is probably the best book out there at the moment (Malware Analysts Cookbook is also great).

Format: Paperback
There are only so many books you can read on the why of malware before you need to get your hands dirty to understand the how of malware.

This is where I have found some books to be lacking - good on theory, but how do you get started analysing malware?
Given the complexities of the subject the authors have done a thorough job, something evident from the fact that the book is 766 pages and there is no fluff.

Highlights:

- advice on how to approach analysing a suspicious file.
- plenty of tools and examples for practical investigation.
- explains how malware authors use certain features of the operating system to their advantage and how to uncover these.
- excellent chapter on packers and unpacking.
- ways to thwart anti-VM techniques.
- there is a companion website where you can download example code to use with the labs.

To get the most out of the book you will need to do the labs and you should have some knowledge of programming, although there is a crash course in x86 assembly language programming and its vital to understand this for the later chapters.

This book is amazing. It is the first book you will need to get into malware analysis, and one of the books you will always need to have handy. Simply a must-have.
