Every year I create a list of things I would like to do with my spare time over the holiday break. Unfortunately I rarely get even half way through that list, and this year is no exception.
Two things that are still on my list fall into the Forensics and Malware Analysis realm.
The first is a tool called Memoryze. Memoryze is a free memory analysis tool from the guys and gals at Mandiant. From my understanding Memoryze is a major part of the memory anaysis component of their MIR (Mandiant Intelligent Response) product released as a free tool.
The second is zerowine. Zerowine is a sourceforge project that largely automates parts of windows malware analysis. From the documentation it appears to run as a double isolated virtual environment (Wine running under QEmu), and provides a web interface for submitting the malware for analysis.
Perhaps some of you could help me out with my Christmas list. If any of you have any first hand experience with either of these tools, pros or cons, which you would be willing to share with our readers, please send them in via our submission page and I would be happy to summarize them for the rest of our readers.
