Explained: Packer, Crypter, and Protector


In this article, we will try to explain the terms packer, crypter, and protector in the context of how they are used in malware. Bear in mind that no definitions for these categories are set in stone and that they all have overlap and that there are exceptions to the rules. But this is the classification that makes sense to me.
