Forensic Investigator, Part 6: Malware Forensics

with expert David Bigger

When was the last time you scanned your system for problems? Did you find anything during a scan? Malware is a serious problem for end systems and networks in general. We are going to look at malware types like rootkits, viruses and Trojans and how we might become compromised. Once we find the malicious software, we as investigators need to know how to analyze the data. We have to ask ourselves are we doing a static or dynamic analysis on the malware. Static versus dynamic, or maybe both, will be a necessary part of our investigation. This course is part of a series covering the EC-Council Computer Hacking Forensic Investigator (CHFI).
