Keynote: Zero Day Malware Cleaning with the Sysinternals Tools

October 11th, 2011

8:00 AM - 9:00 AM

Mark Russinovich

Technical Fellow, Windows Azure Product Team

Microsoft Corporation

After many long years, Microsoft Technical Fellow Mark Russinovich returns to TechMentor!  You’ve known Mark for his sell-out Tech Ed sessions and SysInternals tools he’s written over the years.  Perhaps you’ve read his TechNet blog at where he demystifies some of the hardest troubleshooting problems in Windows. 

Or maybe you’ve even read his new novel, Zero Day, which Booklist calls, “…a gripping narrative.  A terrifying tale made all the more frightening by our concern that it offers a glimpse into the future.”

Mark rejoins TechMentor this fall to deliver a gripping keynote on how Sysinternals tools can solve the hardest problems in IT.  With no small amount of excitement, Mark will deepen your relationship with old friends like Process Monitor, Process Explorer, and Autoruns, among others.  Focusing on their usefulness for malware analysis and removal, Mark will show how to use these tools for deep inspection and control of processes, file system and registry activity, and autostart execution points. He'll demonstrate their malware-hunting capabilities by presenting several real-world cases where he himself used the tools to identify and clean malware.  But that’s not all.  He won’t conclude without an exciting and live analysis of a Stuxnet infection and the horrific system impact it can bring. 

A Mark Russinovich keynote for TechMentor is a rare treat you won’t want to miss.  If malware and its treatment are part of your job, or if you’re just curious about the man behind the Windows, you mustn’t miss kicking off this year’s TechMentor with a keynote by the world renown Mark Russinovich.
