    I remember from my computer security classes in college a book called
    something like "Little Black Book of Viruses" Can't remember who it was by,
    but it was pretty informative. I think it might be available somewhere
    online for free.

    Subject: How to learn virus analysis

    I would like to learn how to disassemble/analyze virii, trojans, etc. I've
    been teaching myself C and Assembly, but I still have a long way to go. Can

    anybody recommend any books, tutorials, subjects, etc. that would point me
    in the right direction? I know that it will take a lot of work before I get

    to a point where I can do it, but I am really interested in it.

    Thanks for any advice.

    john
