Hello guys ! :giggle:

First of all, I looked for something related to this on the forum and didn't find anything unfortunately :( and if it's not the correct forum feel free to move it šŸ˜‰

I'm looking for somewhere I can practice / learn with intentionaly infected VM. I found this series of 3 rooms on THM but that's all TryHackMe | Cyber Security Training

I was wondering if you know another platform I could practice more investigation / analysis / hunt / removal ?

Or if you have any tips, like building my own VM (in a separate LAN of course :p) and download malware to execute on it to understand how they work, how they hide, etc ... Any guides or walkthrough are also appreciated :D

Thanks and enjoy your Sunday :D

Some good malware analysis platforms are:

1. AnyRun

2. Intenzer Analyze

3. FileScan.io

4. Triage

5. Hybrid Analysis

I think AnyRun is just what you are looking for if I understood you correctly. :)

Otherwise use VMware Workstation Player or Oracle Virtual Box and make sure that you are connected to your guest network while also being connected to a VPN of your choice. There is of course more to take a look at, but I think you should find quite a few videos on youtube on how to secure your VM as much as possible.

Check this out for building your own Lab:

I do not know of any good training platform for malware analysis yet that is also affordable.
Maybe hextree.io will develop into that. Keep an eye out on that one.
I am also currently working on a course. But it all needs time.

Hi there!

There are several platforms available for malware training and removal, both free and paid. Here are a few options you can consider:

1. Malware-Traffic-Analysis: This platform provides different PCAP files of network traffic that contains various malicious activities such as malware infections, exploit attempts, and phishing emails. You can download these files and practice analyzing them to learn about malware behavior, persistence techniques, and communication patterns.

2. Flare-VM: This is a Windows-based virtual machine that contains various tools and utilities for malware analysis and reverse engineering. You can download this VM and practice analyzing different malware samples to learn about their behavior, code structure, and functionality.

3. REMnux: Another popular Linux-based malware analysis platform that contains various tools and utilities for analyzing malware on different platforms. REMnux provides pre-configured VM images that you can download and use to practice analyzing various malware samples.

4. SANS: SANS offers various cybersecurity training courses that cover different aspects of malware analysis and removal. These courses are designed for beginners as well as advanced users, and they provide hands-on training with practical exercises and labs.

I hope these suggestions help you in your quest for malware training and removal. Best of luck!
