Malicious Software and its Underground Economy: Two Sides to Every Story - My experience

Hello everybody,

As many of you may know, the  Royal Holloway, University of London along with Coursera joined forces and opened to the Internet a free-of-change course called "Malicious Software and its Underground Economy: Two Sides to Every Story". This course was made by a couple of researchers, mainly the Dr. Lorenzo Cavallaro which is a wonderful guy with a broad very experience on the field as well as a high technical skill regarding malware- related topics.

Basically, the 6 week long course was amazing and very educational. Going from theoretical information (bonus quizzes) and practical/reversing challenge -with some anti-debugging tricks-, this last one if you wanted to get a *distinction* in the certificate . Fortunately, I completed and passed all the quizzes at the 1st time and also completed the Reverse Engineering challenge (in a couple of minutes, actually) ]¬P.

 What I learned? Well, I found very useful information regarding Botnets, Mobile malware as well as how the Internet gangs operates to perform certain activities. I belive from a researcher perspective, this can allow us to enrich/increase our knowledge and to identify new lines of investigation as well as fresh techniques in order to identify this kind of malicious activities.

I support the fact of the Universities can open and give opportunities to all the people that cannot attend -phisically talking- to the university, like in this case.

I had great time taking the course as well as solving the RCE challenge. Also, I would like to thank Dr. Lorenzo for all the good content and effort provided within the course.

Now, let's wait for my certificate. ]¬)
