Are you familiar with the REMnux Linux-based toolkit for malware analysis? Version 7 - which features updated tools and utilities - is now available.


SANS Digital Forensics and Incident Response (DFIR), a curriculum focus area of SANS Institute, today announces the availability of version 7 of the REMnux® toolkit for malware analysis, founded and primarily maintained by Lenny Zeltser, SANS Faculty Fellow and course author. Updates to the REMnux toolkit will be shared and discussed by Lenny Zeltser in a SANS webcast on July 28.

REMnux is a popular Linux-based toolkit for reverse-engineering malicious software which malware analysts have been relying on for more than 10 years to help them quickly investigate suspicious programs, websites, and document files.

As the security industry matures, it becomes harder to keep track of all the tools that are available to assist with the variety of tasks that malware analysts, incident responders, and forensic investigators face. REMnux makes hundreds of free tools, all contributed by the community, available to analysts without having to discover, install, and configure them.
