This includes examining and analysing malware (such as viruses, worms, Trojan horses), exploits and vulnerabilities. Your responsibilities may also include managing the malware analysis lab and its supporting infrastructure. In addition, you will also be required to identify opportunities to leverage new IT technologies to enhance the malware analysis and assessment capabilities of the team.

  • Good knowledge of network protocols (HTTP, FTP, POP3, SMTP, etc)
  • Programming knowledge/experience in C (familiarity with Python or Perl will be beneficial)
  • Experience in reverse engineering x86/64 assembly
