cuckoo sandbox Automated Malware Analysis

cuckoo is a very famous automated malware analysis sandbox using which you can create your own poor guy's malware analysis lab. so let's see how we achieve the goal, stay with me.

Installation & First Run

As the Focus is not installation so i'll simply not let you suffer the huge article pain for installation, if you feel free to install you are pretty good to go with default installation url and if you feel like lost ping me and i'll help you in setting it as much as i can. okay so i assume you guys have already installed cuckoo and let's first run the cuckoo sandbox and virtual-box as well so that cuckoo can find our guest windows xp.
