Windows 7: UNITE (Unified Network of Instructors and trained Eliminators)?

UNITE (Unified Network of Instructors and trained Eliminators)?

I recently came across a site called UNITE -- Not completely sure how, just browsing the forums and browsing the interwebs. I was looking at Malware Tips, and seeing if it were a trustworthy site, then I ended up at SpywareInfoForums, which I've been to a few times before, and am pretty sure it is trustworthy.
-- anyways I came across UNITE (Unified Network of Instructors and Trained Eliminators) and saw a familiar name, and was wondering if the site is a good place to start for someone who wants more experience in malware.
also, from the site I found SpyWareInfoForums Boot camp registration, and I may just start there
-- Thanks for the help
Brad

I have sent you a PM for a website to look into.

Offers a Malware training program, but in return they require you to help out there some of the time.

If your interested, contact Quietman7 (Global Moderator). Tell him you'd like to apply for their Malware training program.

There is a waiting list.

The site you posted. Is only one of the resources for this program. There are several other sites you would become involved in during the training process.

Thanks John, You are a very nice addition to the forums, I'm starting to like you
wow, I really didn't have to do much digging, I was reading a sticky (Do not use Combo Fix on your own), right here in system security and in the first page of comments, it was recommended.
okay, so now the real question is, what do the experts recommend?
I think I'm going to go with http://www.geekstogo.com/geeku/ but, I want a little advice from the experts

redfang337,

Qualifying this comment with the fact that I am not an expert, but made it through the rigors of malware removal training years back. Have also been requested to teach, but, in the true spirit of being retired, decided to stay as such.

All the schools mentioned on the UNITE page are good, otherwise they would not be posted there.

These schools are not easy to get into, so, would suggest you select more than one, and make a choice to join, or not, when you get selected.

The last I recall is that participating in more than one school was not recommended, but that may have changed. However, the schools are not an easy ride, there is lots of work involved, and in some, a final test.

Bleeping Computer | Link to school
Spyware Info Forum | Link to school
Geeks to Go | Link to school
Malware Removal | Link to school
What the Tech | Link to school
Tech Support Forum | Link to School

You will find that the above forums also have a different style, where, once you answer to a thread, it is yours to the end. Other members do not jump in with comments, etc.

Good luck!!

I use Combofix every now and then. Only problem I ever had with it is losing my Internet connection. But, that was easy enough to fix. And when you finish using it, you remove it. The directions for using it are simple. With certain types of infection, ComboFix can really mess up your system. The Malware training gives you the knowledge of what and when to run. How to analyze logs. How to remove using the command prompt. And more.

I think the website you choose from the list doesn't matter much. They all have waiting list, with BC being the longest wait. Once you get accepted to one, contact the others to let them know you have already been enrolled.

You'll be required to put in a certain amount of time. It's usually a lot. The work is hard. It's no Sunday picnic. You have to really be wanting to do this, or you may end up dropping out. So many do.

You left out the part that once you get considered, you still are required to submit a long letter about why your interested, why you should be chosen, how much schooling you have, and so on. Kind of like a life history. Then if they like the sound of you, the board will accept you.

That may be the case now. Do not recall that being the case years back.

I believe more drop out than those who stay. The schools require hard work. It is tough to make it through.



On ComboFix, there is more to this program than just running it. You need to know how to interpret its results, and what actions to take on them, as per ComboFix operation descriptors. The TechSupportForum, which also has a school (Please Read Before Applying To Join The Academy - Tech Support Forum), is the place where sUBs, the creator of ComboFix, calls 'home'. You get put through the wringer there, learning about CF, and many other things.

Do you know "Old Timer" at BC? He's the guy who created many of the BC fix tools which we all use today. Hijackthis, in the old days. Then OTL, and many others.

I know what you saying about ComboFix it can be dangerous in the wrong hands. And if you don't understand the results, your stuck.
