String Concatenation: Obfuscation Techniques

String Concatenation: Obfuscation TechniquesWhile string concatenation has many valuable applications in development — such as making code more efficient or functions more effective — it  is also a popular way for attackers to obfuscate code and try to make it more difficult to detect. Let’s dig into how bad actors are leveraging this technique to conceal their malware.
