Learning outcomes

The course aims to provide the theoretical and practical bases of the malevolent code. In particular, the course proposes techniques for the definition and classification of malicious code, analysis of malicious code and risk management. At the end of the course, the student will have the necessary knowledge to understand the nature and evolution of the malicious code, anti-detection techniques and risk profiles. Furthermore, it will be able to perform reverse engineering of malicious code, identifying its essential components. This knowledge will allow the student to classify the threats and their evolution deriving from malicious code based attacks. The student will then be able to continue his/her studies autonomously in the field of computer security, studying new malicious codes and the respective countermeasures to mitigate their effects.
