I'm studying to become a security expert and I've recently come across the idea of a "crypter". I'm talking about how these crypters encrypt files (such as viruses and keyloggers) so they can bypass antivirus detection. But I'm curious on how they actually work. Can someone help me with a brief overview? Thanks!
