<b>PLEASE READ BEFORE YOU EDIT THE LISTS BELOW</b><br>
+
Analyzing [[malware]], or malicious software, is more of an art than a technique. Because of the wide nature of these products, there are limitless ways to hide functionality.  
Events should be posted in the correct section, and in date order.  An event should NEVER be listed in more than one section (i.e. Ongoing/Continuous events should not be listed in Scheduled Training).  When events begin the same day, events of a longer length should be listed first. New postings of events with the same date(s) as other events should be added after events already in the list. If a provider offers the same event at several locations simultaneously, the listing should have a single (ONE) entry in the list with the date(s) and ALL locations for the event. Please use three-letter month abbreviations (i.e. Sep, NOT Sept. or September), use two digit dates (i.e. Jan 01 NOT Jan 1), and use date ranges rather than listing every date during an event(i.e. Jan 02-05, NOT Jan 02, 03, 04, 05).<br>
+
<i>Some conferences or training opportunities may be <u>limited</u> to <b>Law Enforcement Only</b> or to a specific audience.  Such restrictions should be noted when known.</i>
+
  
This is a BY DATE listing of upcoming conferences and training events relevant to [[digital forensics]]. It is not an all inclusive list, but includes most well-known activities.  Some events may duplicate events on the generic [[conferences]] page, but entries in this list have specific dates and locations for the upcoming event.
+
Some common tools for malware analysis include simple programs like [[strings]]. More complex analysis can be conducted by looking at the headers of executables with programs like [[PEiD]] and [[PeExplorer]]. Finally, the most complete analysis can be done with debuggers like [[IDA Pro]] and [[OllyDbg]].

Revision as of 15:31, 2 March 2007

Analyzing malware, or malicious software, is more of an art than a technique. Because of the wide nature of these products, there are limitless ways to hide functionality.

Some common tools for malware analysis include simple programs like strings. More complex analysis can be conducted by looking at the headers of executables with programs like PEiD and PeExplorer. Finally, the most complete analysis can be done with debuggers like IDA Pro and OllyDbg.
