Start

Start searching for malware inside the pcap. Use the tools mentioned in Malware Analysis.
Volatility is the main open-source framework for memory dump analysis. This Python tool analyzes dumps from external sources or VMware VMs, identifying data like processes and passwords based on the dump's OS profile.
