SANS expanded its popular Reverse-Engineering Malware course (FOR610) to include a day's worth of real-world capture-the-flag challenges! The challenges are designed to reinforce skills covered earlier in the course, making use of the interactive NetWars tournament platform.
By applying the techniques learned earlier in the course, students will solidify their knowledge and can shore up skill areas where they feel they need additional practice. To accomplish this, students will be presented with a variety of challenges involving real-world malware. These challenges will reinforce the ability to respond to typical malware reversing tasks in an instructor-led lab environment and offer additional learning opportunities.
To learn more about the expansion of FOR610, take a look at Jake Williams' posting on this topic.
Tune into the webcast that Jake will host on August 8, 2013 for a sneak peak at the new capture-the-flag experience.Jake will walk through some challenges live. He will also describe how some lucky folks can participate in a 3-hour preview of the challenges for free.
