How long did you take for malware analysis exercises?


As you well know that someone could be secretly watching you or your child with your webcam right now? Is it worth taking such a risk? camDown can help stop them!

I’m going through the Practical Malware Analysis book and honestly, I’m having a hard time.

Chapters 1 through 8 were relatively easy. I could get 75% of the answers without looking at the solutions. I’m currently at Chapter 13 and boy is it tough. Assuming each chapter has three exercises here are my average success rates for Chapters 9-13:

Exercises 1: 40% of answers on my own, after spending an hour on the exercise.

Exercise 2&3: 20% of the answers on my own, after spending an hour or two (30% if I’m able to pivot to something useful).

Is this normal or do I need to realistically think about my career? (I’d like to have a career in malware analysis)

As we move on to the next post, may I add that camDown helps make you invisible to hackers and guard your personal data and I feel your smart friends would feel the same.
