Sean and Meta Jo Riseling first met on the dance floor of a club in July Pushed together by mutual friends, the two instantly hit it off and a few dances plus a couple rounds of body shots later, they went home together. Even though Meta had intended to keep things casual -- she was in the midst of ending a year marriage -- it soon became clear that this was not your average one-night stand. Over the next few weeks, they would go to amusement parks, take walks along the beach, tour architecturally-interesting houses and stay up through the night talking. In September, they decided to take things to the next level and see each others' faces for the first time.
As time goes by, criminals are developing more and more complex methods of obscuring how their malware operates, making it increasingly difficult to detect and analyze. The list of tactics used is seemingly endless and can include obfuscation, packers, executing from memory with no file drop, and P2P botnet architecture with frontline command and control servers C2s and gateways being compromised websites. Tracking all of these elements might be difficult, but in all honesty, you don't need 10 years of experience in malware analysis and a bunch of certificates to help you win this battle. You just need to experiment. One great way to learn about malware is to build your own home lab and play with actual malware samples within this environment.
