Malware analysis is the study or process of determining the functionality, origin and potential impact of a given malware sample such as a virus, worm, trojan horse, rootkit, or backdoor. Malware or malicious software is any computer software intended to harm the host operating system or to steal sensitive data from users, organizations or companies. Malware may include software that gathers user information without permission.

There are three typical use cases that drive the need for malware analysis:

  • Computer security incident management
  • Malware research
  • Indicator of compromise extraction

The method by which malware analysis is performed typically falls under one of two types:

  • Static Analysis
  • Dynamic Analysis

  • Manual Code Reversing
  • Interactive Behavior Analysis
  • Static Properties Analysis
  • Fully-Automated Analysis
