What Is Obfuscation?
Obfuscation is a powerful technique used by hackers and security teams all over the world. Both parties use it for different reasons, but their goal is the same: to make the source code indecipherable, hard to understand, and interpret.
Obfuscation is a technique frequently used by cybercriminals in order to make it more difficult to examine malicious scripts and to thwart security solutions.
Frequent obfuscation methods include:
Instruction pattern transformation; Metadata or unused code removal; Subroutine reordering Dummy code insertion; String encryption; Code transportation
As noticed by BleepingComputer, the majority of these obfuscated samples seem so to have similar code because they were bundled by the same packers, so their code
