It is at the Alert Logic facilities @ 1776 Yorktown, 7th floor, just south of the Marathon Oil tower on San Felipe. It will start at around 6:30pm.
Below is the information on the talk and the speaker. I expect the talk to last about 25 minutes, and then it will be open to questions and comments. We can just let it grow from there.
Thanks to Adam Pridgen for volunteering for this. In the future, if you have something you want to speak on, please let me know.
Reverse Engineering Software with Basic Protections
The presentation will cover the basics of reverse engineering malware or any other software protected with basic protectors and packers using ImmDbg, IDA Pro, LordPE, ImpRefound, Wireshark, and an IRC server. The presentation will walk through dumping the malware to disk, and then cover the general process I used to identify the command structure, functionality, and required parameters to interact with the malware sample.
