Hi guys, i really like the services that the bleepingcomputer offers in fight against the malwares.
So i know about the program, but until its open a spot what do you recommends to start to develop a good base and know-how by self-paced reading  ?
I know the basic stuff, like networking, maintenance and programming.
and I did read a bit of my own in security, and i know a few pieces of knowledge, like pentest, wifi security... But i would like to understand better.
So i would appreciate a few indications.
Thanks in advance.

All viruses are malware but not all malware are viruses and if the malware doesn't self replicate it just isn't a virus.

It also depends of what exactly you want to understand. The training is oriented towards malware removal, while you want to learn about computer protection and security. So I guess it would help us if you could tell us precisely what you want to learn.
