Obfuscation: The Art of Hiding in Plain Sight: Detect ‘19 Series


The definition of obfuscation is: to make something less clear and harder to understand, especially intentionally. Malware authors often employ this methodology to make their malware and payloads more difficult to detect and analyze.

This talk will dive into the fundamentals of obfuscation, encryption, and get down and dirty with deobfuscating some funny and some downright bizarre advanced persistent threat (APT) examples discovered by Anomali researchers. We will also look at a Necurs botnet email that attempted to target victims with an obfuscated script to drop GlobeImposter ransomware and the Trickbot trojan.

Viewers will learn how to deobfuscate payloads in PowerShell, JavaScript, and VBScript using a multitude of open source tools, as well as tricks to identify files that are not as they seem at first glance.

Watch the on-demand webcast led by Ryan Robinson, Security Researcher at Anomali.
