Learning Malware Analysis Posted by Antti @ 08:28 GMT

If you happen to be studying at the Aalto University in Helsinki, there's one lecture you don't want to miss tomorrow: our Chief Research Officer Mikko Hypp´┐Żnen will open the course on Malware Analysis and Antivirus Technologies.

This is a course that we've arranged in co-operation with Aalto University for the past three years. It's always a joy to see people pick up reverse engineering skills and learning malware analysis. Every year we create homework puzzles for the students to test their skills on. This spring Timo, who is working here at the Labs, will be creating the puzzles for the course. Timo is also the author of the T2'10 Challenge, which started off like this:

If that looks strange to you, you can also turn it into a picture:

Does it still look weird? Do you think you'd enjoy solving more puzzles and getting course credits for doing it? Then we hope to see you in the course!

If you're not a student at the university, you can view the course material from the course page, where we'll post new material as the course progresses.
