    Comments about oreilly Malware Forensics Field Guide for Windows Systems:

    Very dense, detailed and technical. As a non Windows specialist, I found this book perfect to get a head start.
    Much info and step by step rigorous processes to track and study malwares and produce forensic results.
    To be kept as a reference.

    Comments about oreilly Malware Forensics Field Guide for Windows Systems:

    This book is great for serious techs looking for the nuts and bolts of malware. I, however, am a consultant and troubleshooter involved regularly in removing malware. Since the appearance of Conduit, I've been looking for a good reference book on eliminating these more troublesome pieces of work and thought that this book was that help. I was wrong. I don't care about the deep technicalities, just how to effectively get rid of it.
