Stack and Registers

Question 1

The aim of this assessment is to analyze a given sample of malware, using static and dynamic analysis and reverse engineering.

Static and dynamic analysis (20%)

  •  You must use your existing knowledge of static and dynamic analysis methods and tools to analyze the sample

Reverse engineering (10%)

  •  You must first do some research on assembly control flow constructs (conditional and unconditional). Then you must research how to reverse engineer the sample using suitable tools (e.g. IDA, Olldbg etc.).
  •  Examining the disassembled code, you should answer the following questions:
  •  Identify one procedure call. Explain what this function does by stepping through the code and explaining the effects it has on the registers and memory.
  •  Identify one conditional and one unconditional control flow construct in the code. Again step through the code and explain the effect these constructs have on the stack and registers

Question 2

The theme of the 2018 Malaysian Budget is “prospering an inclusive economy for the wellbeing of the people towards the National Transformation 50 (NT50) aspiration”. The NT50 (50 years 2000 to 2050) inspiration is an effort by the Government to shape Malaysia’s future and to enhance nation’s economic development, citizen well-being and innovation.
