Tags: Security Malware

Summary : It is important for the security
professional to understand the techniques used by those they hope to
defend against. This presentation focuses on the anti-forensic
techniques which malware authors incorporate into their malicious code,
as opposed to relying solely on an external rootkit. In addition to
describing a number of known but scarcely documented techniques, this
presentation will describe techniques which have never been observed
through the presenter's experience with incident response and malware
reverse engineering. This presentation will contain a great deal of
highly technical content which covers the specifics of the techniques
down to the machine instruction level. For the security
professional/enthusiast with a limited technical background in this
area, this presentation will serve as an eye-opening overview of malware
anti-forensic techniques as well as a limited introduction to forensic
analysis.
