Malware Automation - Christopher Elisan (BSides Las Vegas 2013) (Hacking Illustrated Series InfoSec Tutorial Videos)

Malware Automation - Christopher Elisan

Automation is key when it comes to production. The same is true for malware. Malware production has moved on from the traditional manual method to a more efficient automated assembly line. In this talk, I will take the audience on an over-the-shoulder look at how attackers automate malware production. Discussion will focus on the tools and methodologies the attackers use to produce thousands of malware on a daily basis. The talk will then conclude with a live demonstration of how malware is produced in an automated fashion.

BIO: Christopher Elisan is the author of "Malware, Rootkits and Botnets: A Beginner's Guide." Elisan is a seasoned reverse engineer and malware researcher. He is currently the Prinicipal Malware Scientist at RSA. Elisan is one of the pioneers of Trend Micro's TrendLabs where he held multiple technical and managerial positions. After Trend, he led and established F-Secure's Asia R&D where he spearheaded multiple security research projects. He then joined Damballa where he specialized in malware research, analysis and reversing. He frequently speaks at various security conferences across the US and provides expert opinion about malware, botnets and advance persistent threats for leading industry and mainstream publications.
