Sample text

Listing the files in this folder will show all of them having 470 bytes each, which will arouse suspicion. In addition, assuming the malware does not have a routine to retain the original date of the infected host files, the infected files will have similar timestamps, which will definitely scream infection. These telltale signs are so obvious that optical inspection makes it easy to spot the virus. Another telltale sign of an overwriting virus infection is that every time an infected host file is executed, it will not function as expected because the virus code completely destroyed the original program or host code so there is nothing to pass the control to after the virus code has executed, which is often silent.

Dynamic analysis tools, also known as system monitoring tools, are the ones monitoring the malware test environment for any changes made by the malware to the target system. Some of the changes that are monitored and recorded include changes in the file system, modifications in configuration files, and any other relevant changes that are triggered by the malware’s execution. The dynamic analysis tools also monitor inbound and outbound network communications and any operating system resources used by the malware.

This is where the data regarding host changes becomes really important. indd 10 02/07/15 4:43 PM AppDev / Advanced Malware Analysis / Christopher Elisan / 974-6 / Chapter 1 Chapter 1: Malware Analysis 101 11 that it can be reversed and the operating system restored to a “pre-infected” or clean state.
