Student requirements

The only requirement for this course is that you must bring your own laptop and have admin/root access on it. During the course, we will give you VPN access to our state-of-art Hacklab which is hosted in our data-center in the UK. Once you are connected to the lab, you will find all the relevant tools/VMs there. We also provide a dedicated Kali VM to each attendee on the hacklab, accessed using SSH. So, you don’t need to bring any VMs with you. All you need is admin access to install the VPN client and once connected, you are good to go!  Attendees may optionally come prepared with an OpenVPN client (e.g. OpenVPN Client for Windows, we suggest Tunnelblick for Mac, the OpenVPN client is often included natively for Linux but may need installing/updating) and an SSH client (e.g. PuTTY for Windows, generally included natively for Linux/Mac) installed.

Trainings provides

If you are looking to develop your hacking skills further, either for working as a pen tester, or you need to understand how hackers work so that you are better able to defend against it, then this course is for you. In addition to increasing your knowledge and confidence, it provides excellent preparation for the advanced hacking examinations. By utilizing the Hack-Lab following the Advanced Infrastructure Hacking course you are provided with time to test and hone your skills and your understanding of the tools and applications used throughout the course. You can take these away for working with on a day to day basis. There are guides, walkthroughs and examples for you to use as follow-up so that you can translate these modules into practical values within your business. Access to our Hack-Lab is not just for your work during the course, you will have access for 30 days after the course too. This gives you plenty of time to practice the concepts taught during the course. The Hack-Lab contains a wide variety of challenges from local privilege escalation to VLAN hopping etc. Numerous scripts and tools will also be provided during the course, along with Delegate handouts.

Advanced Malware Unpacking - 3 day (Online) with Kyriakos Economou


What started as a hobby with reverse engineering software protection, later became a large part of our professional careers in deciphering and debugging heavily obfuscated malware.

Zeroperil has combined the most interesting aspects from reverse engineering software protection and malware into this fast paced and intense course.

The course aims to teach students how to deal with a large variety of executable packers, crypters and modern malware loaders.

Attendees will learn advanced tactics, techniques and procedures in order to be able to retrieve the original malware samples from within multiple layers of obfuscation. As a result, static analysis will be easier and indicators of compromise can be extracted. Unpacked malware binaries will be fully working, allowing for dynamic analysis.

Students will gain the confidence to approach unknown executable packers and crypters by learning and applying principles that we will be teaching throughout the course.

Techniques for automated sample unpacking by taking advantage of the x86dbg/x64dbg scripting engine will be covered. By the end of the course students will be able to write their own powerful debugger automation scripts.


The training course is fully remote and sessions will be conducted over Microsoft Teams. Each student will be presented with a copy of the training materials.


Although this course does go through the necessary introductory and background theory of several technical aspects, the following set of skills is desirable prior attending:

  • Basic usage of user-mode debuggers (Olly, x64/x32Dbg)
  • Basic understanding of x86/x64 assembly language
  • Basic knowledge of programming concepts such as pointers, loops, functions etc…
  • Experience with handling malware safely (i.e. Virtual Machines and network segregation)

Technical requirements

Although this course does go through the necessary introductory and background theory of several technical aspects, the following set of skills is desirable prior attending:

  • Computer/laptop able to handle a VM with a minimum of 4 dedicated CPU cores, and 4 GB of RAM
  • Good internet connectivity
  • A virtualisation software that is able to take runtime snapshots of the guest OS
  • A virtualisation software that is able to run modern Windows OS (10, 8.1, 7)

Target audience

With the increasing number of attacks involving malware of all kinds for example remote access trojans, ransomware and information stealers to name but a few; malware analysis skills have become a necessity for security operators. Having the ability and knowledge to deal with malware that use advanced techniques to hinder the analysis, is essential for the reverse engineer. Many malware analysts rely on third-party tools to automate their work, which instead should be part of their skillset simply because tools can and do fail.

If you always wanted to learn how to reverse engineer and unpack well-known executable packers such as UPX, ASPack, PECompact, WinUpack, ASProtect, and learn to deal with modern malware loaders, this is definitely the training course for you.

This training course is open to all information security professionals and reverse engineering enthusiasts who are interested in elevating their Windows malware analysis skills to ninja level. The course will provide advanced technical skills that will give an analyst the ability to unpack common executable packers and malware loaders by hand.

The following roles in information security will mostly benefit from this course:

  • Manual unpacking of common packers and generic malware loaders
  • Automate unpacking of previously analysed packers
  • Produce fully working unpacked samples that can be analysed both dynamically and statically

Take aways

Hand-outs will be given in PDF format covering the unpacking process of the malware samples. You will also get a copy of our unpacking scripts that we will be showcasing during the course, as well as all source code that may be used during demos.


During this course we will be dealing with real malware samples.

Some basic instructions will be given during the course on the safe handling of live malware samples; however, it is the attendee’s responsibility to ensure that correct procedures are carried out.

AppSecOps - 3 day (Online) with Jovin Lobo and Dharmendra Gupta


AppSecOps is a 3-day course providing a holistic approach towards application security for developers with automation. This class covers the latest OWASP Top 10 (2021 edition) through an attacker’s perspective and looks at the various best practices/code snippets in Java, .NET, NodeJS, and Python to write secure code. Throughout this class, developers will be able to get on the same page with security professionals, understand their language, learn how to fix or mitigate vulnerabilities learnt during the class and also get acquainted with some real-world breaches, for example, “The Equifax” breach in September 2017.Various bug bounty case studies from popular websites like Facebook, Google, Shopify, PayPal, Twitter etc will be discussed explaining the financial repercussions of application security vulnerabilities like SSRF,XXE,SQL Injection, Authentication issues etc… Post learning and understanding what application security vulnerabilities are and how to fix and identify, this class will talk about what DevOps is and will cover the short-comings of having a traditional security set-up in a devops environment. We will then show how to use automation to weed out some of the vulnerabilities by injecting security into a DevOps pipeline. As part of the class attendees will be provided access to an online lab where they can practice their application security skills and practice implementing security in a Jenkins pipeline. We will provide a vagrant script and show the participants how to set up the custom developed DevSecOps-Lab VM containing all the tools and code which are used for demonstrating the DevSecOps pipeline.
