F-secure is about to start a course called "Malware Analysis and Antivirus Technologies" at the Helsinki University of Technology. I really wish we had that kind of classes when I was attending college!

And since F-secure is full of cool people, they provide the slides from the courses that were already done!

On the menu:

  • General introduction of the course [slides]
  • Fighting Online Crime [slides]
  • Windows operating system: Antivirus perspective.
  • Legal aspects of reverse engineering. Reverse engineering I
  • Reverse engineering II
  • Reverse engineering tools hands on classes
  • Mobile malware.
  • Using debuggers to analyze malware
  • Emulators and disassemblers. Behavioral analysis of malware.
  • Reverse engineering III
  • Unpacking and decrypting malware
  • Antivirus engine design.
