Chapter 2. Malware Analysis in Virtual Machines

This chapter had no questions, but rather documented setting up a VM for malware analysis. Broadly speaking the process to follow is below:

  • Create a clean snapshot without any malware.
  • Transfer malware to the VM.
  • Perform analysis from within the VM.
  • Take notes, screenshots, and data from the VM, and move these back to your Host OS.
  • Revert the VM back to the clean snapshot.

This concludes chapter 2, proceed to the next chapter.
