Malware analysis is a technique used to determine the potential effects of a particular malware, and it can be used to trace the source of the malware. Malware is any software which has been designed to operate in a malicious and undesirable manner. The presence of malware in a system can disturb the smooth running of the system. Static Malware Analysis and Dynamic Malware are two types of Malware analysis. Static malware analysis is used to determine the source and the activities of a particular malware in a system.

Malware analysis is a technique used to determine the potential effects of a particular malware,
Static malware analysis works without running the malware, and it doesn't tamper with the malware let alone running it. Dynamic malware analysis is also used to detect the origin and the activities of a particular malware by running the malware codes. Since the malware codes will be run when using dynamic malware analysis, the activities of the malware can be seen and monitored.
