VB2015 paper: VolatilityBot: Malicious Code Extraction Made by and for Security Researchers

Posted by   Martijn Grooten on   Apr 22, 2016

Given the sheer volume of new malware samples discovered every day, security researchers eagerly make use of tools that will help automate their research and analysis.

IBM Trusteer researcher Martin Korman wrote one such tool, 'VolatilyBot', which extracts malicious code from packed binaries, leveraging the functionality of the Volatility Framework. At VB2015 in Prague, Martin presented his tool and the paper he wrote describing it.
