    Sophos security expert Maxim Weinstein (in conjunction with The Center for Internet Security) helps beginners learn how malware works, how it spreads, how security measures can detect and block it, and why it’s still a problem despite advances in security technology.

    Maxim walks through a real-world example (the compromise of NBC.com from 2013) and provides definitions of common terms along the way. Get our free A-Z Threat Guide

    I would like to learn how to implement the opposite of what the video teaches. For instance, I want to create a piece of malware that causes youtube to open on a remote machine and plays the Rick Astley video, “Never Give Up”. Essentially I want to Remotely Rick Roll people. Its all for the lulz of course
