Exploring web threats

How to examine malicious websites and their effects - for professional beginners.

If you want to capture a live sample of a phishing website, or a site that is infected with malware, the techniques covered will help.

These tips are particularly useful considering how malicious websites can come and go very quickly.

I wrote this presentation for a customer who wanted a way to analyse some of the main threats to its users and to help when problems occurred. The solutions and threats included:

  1. Phishing websites designed to steal account details.
  2. Sites hosting exploits and malware designed for stealing account details.
  3. Malware infection detection.
  4. Malware removal tips.

You can download a free PDF of the presentation I gave.

If you just want an introduction to HTTPReplay and Fiddler2 then this might be helpful also.
