I am looking for journals to keep track of the latest advances in reverse engineering, binary analysis, malware, binary exploitation, etc.

    IMO if you want "latest advances", you have to go beyond academia and into the field. – Igor Skochinsky Jan 18 '19 at 15:28

You have a few academic workshops and conferences about the topic (or close to the topic). But, most of them are appearing and disappearing quite often unfortunately. So, it is difficult to come with a long lasting list of conferences. Anyway, here is an attempt:

Still Alive Conferences

  • RAID (International Symposium on Research in Attacks, Intrusions and Defenses) (21 years old)
  • Journal of Computer Virology and Hacking Techniques (Springer) (15 years old)
  • WOOT (Workshop on Offensive Technologies) (12 years old)
  • SSPREW (Software Security, Protection, and Reverse Engineering / Software Security and Protection Workshop) (8 years old)
  • CODASPY (ACM Conference on Data and Application Security and Privacy) (8 years old)
  • BotConf (Botnet fighting Conference) (6 years)
  • EuroS&P (IEEE European Symposium on Security and Privacy) (4 years old)
  • ROOTS (Reversing and Offensive-oriented Trends Symposium) (2 years old)

Discontinued Conferences

  • WCRE (Working Conference on Reverse Engineering)
  • SPRO (Workshop on Software PROtection)

These lists are definitely non-exhaustive, so feel free to tell me if I forget something!

This is an indirect answer to your question, but hopefully still useful. There are multiple conferences that feature state-of-the-art work in this space. If anyone knows of more, feel free to add on to this list.

(links are to the archives of the conferences, whenever possible)

Bonus: PoC||GTFO is a completely different style of research than any conference listed above, but it's full of great information and is lots of fun to read.

  • Ah! I thought it was only academic conferences!!! Sorry! Yes, Infiltrate, RECon and OffensiveCon are also well known! Good catch. – perror Jan 17 '19 at 20:04

There is also malware conference which has been running since at least 2011. https://www.malwareconference.org/
