F-Secure launches malware analysis course at Helsinki University.
Researchers at F-Secure have decided to do their bit in helping to educate the next generation of malware analysts. A new course entitled 'Malware Analysis and Antivirus Technologies' starts at Helsinki University of Technology this spring.
The course covers topics including reverse engineering, the use of debuggers, emulators and disassemblers, unpacking and decrypting code and designing an anti-virus engine, as well as more general topics such as mobile malware and malware in the Windows environment. Lectures will be given by senior analysts and researchers from F-Secure, including Mikko Hyppönen, Mika Ståhlberg and Gergely Erdelyi - all past VB conference speakers.
The 40-place course is already fully subscribed, but the organizers say they will consider repeating it if there is sufficient interest.
