Why Malware Analysis?
Did you know that more than 1 billion malware programs are out there and 560,000 new pieces of malware are detected everyday? Do we have enough professionals and technology to deal with this rising number of malwares in our cyberspace?
Just a quick overview malware is malicious software that has the intention of stealing information, spying on someone or causing damage to one’s system.
Let’s start with one of the most common types of malware.
