Sample text

If a file matches a malware class, the sample is seldom dropped. The malware class usually helps to determine what to monitor or look for during dynamic analysis. In some cases, it can be used to determine a specific sandbox implementation. For example, if a sample has been determined statically to have mass-mailing capabilities, it can be thrown into a sandbox that has different mail clients installed. The main idea here is throwing the suspicious file deemed to be malware into a sandbox implementation that satisfies all of its known dependencies to get the most promising results during dynamic analysis.

This is helpful especially, as stated previously, if the malware is extremely difficult to analyze and there is only a short amount of time available to understand what the malware is doing. Familiarization with malware enables the malware researcher and analyst to formulate information from bits and pieces of data and not come out empty handed. This comes with experience and education. The malware can then be tested again to either prove or disprove the conclusion drawn by the researcher or analyst from the bits of data gathered.

Scripts Since a macro is a scripting language, it is not far-fetched to use other scripts as platforms for viruses. The only difference between a macro virus and a script virus is that the script does not need to be embedded in a file. It can be embedded, or it can be a stand-alone script. The most utilized scripting languages to write script viruses are Visual Basic Script (VBS) and JavaScript. VBS is supported by Windows, so there are no special dependencies needed for it to run properly. As for JavaScript, it usually works as part of an application such as a web browser and a Portable Document Format (PDF) file.
