Me no speak you English.


There is no difference between unpacking malware and unpacking commercial software. Same basic principles apply, same methods and tools. In fact, malware unpacking is usually easier, because kids love to use all sorts of "FUD crypters" which can be unpacked really easy. There are only few malware samples that are really difficult to unpack, it's quite unlikely that you'll encounter them.


Just a friendly reminder - you really should use a virtual machine (like VMWare) when playing with malware. :)

@rever_ser: The protection algorithms used in commerical applications are generally more advanced than malwares. As mentioned by kao above, usually unpacking malwares is much easier as compared to custom challenges available online. Some malwares use custom packers with multi stages of unpacking which are easy to unpack as well.
