Get $3500 iDefense Advanced Malware Class for Price of a Single Book
Get the benefit of the former $3500 Verisign iDefense Advanced Malware class for the price of a single book. The “Malware Analyst’s Cookbook” has been released, and it appears to be a much better value than it might seem at first glance. Michael Hale Ligh (formerly of iDefense, now Terremark) is one of the authors and he taught the well-regarded iDefense Malware analysis class that I am comparing this book to. He is also one of the top 10 malware reverse engineers in the world – and I do include the best among the intelligence services, military, and national labs in making that claim.
Other authors include Blake Harstein (also of iDefense) – the author of Jsunpack (jsunpack.jeek.org) – and Steven Adair who brought us the ShadowServer Foundation (shadowserver.org).
The lists of chapters from the book reads much like the outline of the $3500 iDefense class.
