This presentation will cover fileless malware with the goal of deepening your understanding of techniques used to stay off of disk. This talk will outline the theories and reasoning behind the usage of fileless techniques, methods of execution, evasion, as well as demonstrations of techniques that leverage Microsoft-signed binaries to execute arbitrary malicious code. The presentation will be followed by an open Q&A session, so bring any and all questions!
