Mobile Malware and Spyware - Working Through the Bugs

  • Cindy Murphy
  • Thursday, July 17th, 7:15pm - 8:15pm

Can malware and spyware taint the evidence you find on mobile devices? Could they actually potentially help your investigation? In this session, learn the difference between malicious targeting, such as spear phishing, and inadvertent mobile malware installation from app stores and other locations. Find out what to listen for when you interview victims. Learn what to look for in mobile forensic exams, including what should trigger an in-depth malware exam. See how to unpack and decompile APK files using free tools in order to see the malware's underlying code and ascertain what it might be doing. Finally, learn what ramifications malware -- or its absence -- can have for your cases.
