Reverse Engineering Malware


Malware Analysis is the study through the dissection of their different components and of its behavior in the operating system of the host computer. This analysis is a more specialized use of reverse engineering that requires a set of skills applicable to work properly at work.

Reverse engineering, as seen from the perspective of cracking software and binary auditing, needs a lot of skill to do it right. For this reason we have qualified personnel, who will guarantee you a meticulous, rigorous and satisfactory work.

There are two main techniques of malware analysis:

  • Static Malware Analysis: This is usually done by dissecting the different resources of the binary file and studying each component. This file can also be disassembled with reverse engineering using an assembler as IDA. The machine code can be translated into assembly code that can be read and understood by human beings. A malware analyst can make sense of the assembly instructions and have an image of what the program is supposed to perform.

  • Dynamic Malware Analysis: This is done by observing and recording the behavior of the malware while running on the host. Virtual machines and sandboxes are widely used for this type of analysis. The malware is debugging while running using a debugger such as GDB or WinDbg to see the behavior of the malware step by step, while its instructions are being processed by the processor and its effects live in RAM.

    We will help you to disarm malicious software such as viruses that can get through the Internet, and give you all the necessary information to contain the risk. The study procedure and Analysis of Mareware, we do it in 5 main points:

  • Establish an isolated and controlled laboratory to examine the malware specimen.
  • Perform behavioral analysis to examine the interactions of the samples with their environment.
  • Perform static code analysis to understand better internal performance of the sample.
  • Perform dynamic code analysis to understand the most difficult aspects of the code.
  • If necessary, decompress the sample.
  • One of the important aspects to keep in mind is the continous evolution of Malware and the annual changes, new methods are used to infect, as well as operate and sometimes bring back the old methods if they are applicable again.

    The injection of processes is a method that malware uses to hide its operations, it must go through a series of functions in order to perform this technique and it is important that we are able to identify what happens in the code, this is provided by the experience and knowledge. Research, practice and knowledge are key to effectively analyze the new malware.
