*PDF Malware & Analysis*
Join us for the Women's Society of Cyberjutsu (WSC) Cybersecurity Workshop hosted from our Washington, DC location. This is a hands-on, practical workshop where you will put into practice those things you may have read or covered in a class. This is also a great way to keep your skills fresh if you’re a veteran.
Every workshop addresses beginner and advanced topic material. Beginners are encouraged to watch and learn as much as possible even though you may not have a clue. Exposure to new tools and techniques by watching will advance your learning process a lot quicker than trying to learn on your own. You will get to ask questions and see how it's done in the real world. Advanced attendees are encouraged to share and help answer "noob" questions as much as possible so everyone can learn from them.
Ever wanted to know how bad guys turn normal everyday PDF documents into malware payloads? This workshop will introduce you to PDF malware and analysis. We'll use industry tools such as peepdf and Metasploit to build and analyze malware that uses vulnerabilities (and features) in the Portable Document Format.
We are pleased to have Ben Schmoker as our presenter. Ben is a security researcher focused on reverse engineering malware and responding to network intrusions. He has given talks at research labs and government agencies, and currently works for a security intelligence startup.
