This year, for my diary entries with malware analysis, I will check each time if a malware sample can be analyzed with the strings command (or a variant). And if it does, I'll write-up a second analysis with the strings command.

Although most malware samples don't contain clear text strings, I regularly encounter samples that do.

I hope this will make malware analysis more accessible to a larger audience.

Best wishes for the new year to you and your family from all of us at the SANS Internet Storm Center!
