Blackhoodie at NorthSec 2022 - Getting cosy with Malware Static Analysis
2022-05-19, 16:00–18:00, Salle de bal

This workshop is intended to show how exploring the world of Windows malware in the "eyes" of static analysis can actually be a really fun thing!

The participants will go over the life cycle of malware, by statically analyzing some real malware and learning how to read and understand the intention behind a piece of code.

This training is free and for women only as per Blackhoodie standards. It will be held in two 2 hour sessions on consecutive days and has a cap of 10 participants. Registration: Reach out to

Following Blackhoodie's guidelines regarding COVID, we require proof of vaccination and attendees to wear masks during the workshop

Topics that will be covered:
- Understanding the PE file format
- Using disassemblers like Ghidra or IDA
- Recognizing some common malware routines (tricks used to stay persistent, obfuscation, etc)

If time permits, there will be a chance to learn how to use scripts to augment and make the experience of static analysis easier.
