currently I'm doing some Forensic challenges. These challenges are pretty cool, but I'm stuck at the harder ones (obfscation an Windows Infinity Edge). To solve these tasks, I do not want to just google or read a writeup and follow the steps described.
I want to understand what I'm doing, how specific tools are working, how an excel-document is constructed/how bad code is implemented by attackers etc.....
My questions are: Is Malware Analysis (MA) an own field of expertise or just a part of Reverse Engineering (RE)? How could I get better in MA? Are there some books, online tutorials, courses etc. for beginners? Should I first start with some basics of RE and the dive deeper into MA?
I found this post (https://forum.hackthebox.eu/discussion/comment/51852#Comment_51852) but I don't know, whether this is the right way to start, because the focus lies on RE.
