First of all, sorry if this is the wrong section; this seemed to be the most fitting section to me.

 

Okay so I was trying to find a place to learn more about malicious software. I ended up trying to get to the BleepingComputer school but it asked me for a pass code. I really want to learn more so I can help people out on multiple forums. I currently know a little about how to remove malware, adware, ransomeware and some good tools but I'd like to know more about analyzing logs, better tools and more methods. So basically I'm requesting a code to the school because I want to help people out but I need more skills.

 

Hopefully you can get back to me.

 

Have a good day,

Speech.

Hello Speech.

Glad to see that you have an interest in this area!

As you noted when you attempted to enroll in the program, we do not have any slots currently available. Slots are opened up as existing trainees progress, so due to the self paced nature of the program there is not a set schedule or time period when new slots are added.

With regards to a passcode, please see the following (quoted from Malware Removal Training Program):

If you feel that special circumstances require our attention, contact this Study Hall Admin only.


So, if you feel that you have extenuating circumstances that merit possible immediate acceptance to the program, I would advise you to contact the SHA as quoted above explaining your circumstance. Otherwise, I would recommend you check the admissions page at least once a day to see if any slots have opened up.

Hope that helps; best of luck!

Spoiler

 

Uh, okay that's fine. I read over the Malware Removal Training Program topic and saw that it required a minimum of twenty posts. Just a quick question am I allowed to post in this section advice or is this a section for certified helpers?

 

Have a good day!

Speech.

hello site admin,

bleeping  previously helped me remove some malware (maybe 6 months ago), it was a nasty browser hijack problem. 

Did all those posts of log  data count toward the 20 required in order to qualify for the training?

 

tks

Hello don -

I am not Blade to whom you directed the question, but I am able to answer the question.

 

The link for application to the  Malware Removal Training Program is fairly simple in the way it describes minimum requirements. If you only expect to have 20 posts and they were from being helped, this is nothing towards helping others as you are asked to do.

 

Also the chances of just saying "I have 20 posts, let me in" will never exist, due to class space.

You are asked to try and help others (constructive posts) while your appliction is looked at, and only then, if places are available, will new admissions be taken.

 

The quote below is your best idea of a reply to your question -

Please Note:
Due to the large numbers of requests for training, we utilize an automated program that will open a training slot to applicants when one becomes available. If the classes are full, please check back often to see if there is an opening.

Additionally we request that you have a minimum of 20 posts on the Bleeping Computer forum.

This will be used in conjunction with the application process to help us get an understanding of your posting style an ability to interact on a forum style help site.

Note that we expect posts that contribute to the topic it is posted in.  Non-constructive posts, of which the only scope is to reach the post limit, may lead to your application being denied.

Thank You -

BleepingComputer is regarded as one of the best schools for training Malware Specialists these days.

However there are times that other schools may be more suited to some people, and they may like to try some of those listed below as an option.

 

This is just added as extra iformation on the subject of training facilities -

 

If you're interested in helping others with removal of Malware the sites below also offer a training school.

 

The following are websites who host training facilities: United Network of Instructors and Trained Eliminators
Bleeping Computer
Geeks to Go
SpywareHammer
Malware Removal
What the Tech
SpywareInfo Forum
That Computer Guy
Tech Support Forum

 

Please visit each site, if you wish, and you can seek further details there, not here.

 

Thank You -

Oh cool! I've never noticed that bc has a school :) I'm going to try and get into it when there's some space in it. Well, all I can say is thanks for finding this! I really badly want to learn more about computers and viruses, in fact, I have actually registered here only because of that. Before I registered, I was lurking around for 4 months, then I decided that I want to learn more and help people as much as I can.

First submit your application, then wait to see if you get a reply.

 

Finally Wait, Wait, Wait and be patient. If accepted then Work, Work, Work, as it is not always easy.

 

I have listed the others above, as some schools do have more places, and can admit you a bit quicker -

 

Good Luck -

Due to the self-paced structure of training and limited number of instructors here at BC, it is impossible to say with any accuracy when slots will open. There is no notification system in place for when slots open so you need to keeping checking back if BC Study Hall is the school you prefer to enroll in. The logistics and management of such a system and the fact we have a worldwide membership negate the potential effectiveness and fairness one would expect from it.
