Overview

You are being exposed to malicious scripts in one form or another every day, whether it be in email, malicious documents, or malicious websites.

In this webcast you will learn how to cut through the obfuscation techniques the script authors use and not spend a lot of time doing it. Evan will demonstrate how to quickly deobfuscate a variety of malicious scripts. The slides, samples and the utility scripts that he wrote to deobfuscate malicious scripts will be available after the webcast.
