Product description

From the Back Cover

Powerful, step-by-step solutions to dozens of common threats

We called this a cookbook because each "recipe" presents both the ingredients and the steps you take to resolve a specific problem or research a given threat. On the DVD, you'll find supporting files and original programs that provide additional resources. You'll learn how to analyze malware using tools written by the authors as well as hundreds of other publicly available tools. If your job involves incident response, computer forensics, systems security, or antivirus research, this book will become invaluable to you.

  • Learn to conduct online investigations without revealing your identity

  • Use honeypots to collect malware being distributed by bots and worms

  • Analyze JavaScript, PDFs, and Office documents for suspicious content

  • Build a low-budget malware lab with virtualization or bare bones hardware

  • Reverse engineer common encoding and encryption algorithms

  • Set up an advanced memory forensics platform for malware analysis

  • Investigate prevalent threats such as Zeus, Silent Banker, CoreFlood, Conficker, Virut, Clampi, Bankpatch, BlackEnergy, and many more!

On the DVD

Use the files on the DVD to follow along with the recipes or to conduct your own investigations and analyses. You will find:

  • Evidence files

  • Annotated videos

  • Source code

  • Windows and Linux tools

  • Over 50 original programs in Python, C/C++, and Perl

5.0 out of 5 stars A lil damaged (bought used) but exactly what I wanted
Reviewed in the United States on 29 January 2021
It is hard to find used books that also include the CD so I was happy when this one had it! The book was packed with almost no protection so I was surprised it wasn't even more damaged but it just looks averagely used. I haven't read the book itself but skimming it made it seem very informational. If you don't know too much about malware and things relating to it, it will be a beneficial read. Overall decent product, decent seller, too!
