The SANS FOR610 author team (Lenny Zeltser and Jake Williams) are pleased to announce the expansion of the course from five to six days. While FOR610 is already an extremely hands-on course, we've added an entire extra day of hands on exercises designed to reinforce the reversing skills you've learned. The new day six is built on the extremely popular NetWars platform. The platform may be familiar, but the challenges are all new (and all malware). In this webcast, Jake will provide a sneak peek of the new platform. He'll walk you through a sample challenge and explain how to reverse engineer the payload from a malicious PDF. Jake will also announce a special contest where you can try the new platform for free. Yes, that's right: free. If you want to take your reversing skills to the next level, this is one webcast not to be missed.
