Setup

Configuration Guide

We recommend you begin configuring your VM early, allowing time for things to go wrong. We strongly recommend that you use VMWare Workstation Pro (Windows and Linux) or VMWare Fusion (OS X). You can try it out for 30 days for free, though you’ll likely want a license if you’re going to be analyzing malware regularly. VMWare Workstation Player will not suffice for our purposes, as we need the ability to create snapshots and Workstation Player does not provide this ability. The instructors will not be prepared to troubleshoot issues outside of the recommended platform.
