I often use commandline tools for malware analysis, like for the BASE64/XOR decoding I did in my last diary entry.
Of course, there are alternatives if you prefer to use a tool with a graphical user interface. Like the online tool CyberChef.
Here I'm illustrating how I use CyberChef to decode the obfuscated URL from last diary entry's sample:
First I drag-and-drop the "From BASE64" operation to the recipe:
