XOR Operation

Created the Monday 18 March 2019. Updated 6 months, 2 weeks ago.

The XOR operation is a common technique used by malware to hide data. This is because it is a simple and reversible function, meaning that the same operation can be used to both encode and decode data. In the XOR operation, a key is used to create a ciphertext, which is then used to encrypt the original data.

The encrypted data can then be decrypted using the same key, allowing the original data to be accessed. The XOR operation is often used by malware because it is easy to implement and can be used to effectively conceal data from detection.
