Malicious code (or Malware) is defined as software that fulfills the deliberately harmful intent of an attacker. Malware analysis is the process of determining the behavior and purpose of a given Malware sample (such as a virus, worm, or Trojan horse). This process is a necessary step to be able to develop effective detection techniques and removal tools.(More)
For many years, online criminals have been able to conduct their illicit activities by masquerading behind disreputable Internet Service Providers (ISPs). For example, organizations such as the Russian Business Network (RBN), Atrivo (a.k.a., Intercage), McColo, and most recently, the Triple Fiber Network (3FN) operated with impunity, providing a safe haven(More)
Malicious code is an increasingly important problem that threatens the security of computer systems. The traditional line of defense against malware is composed of malware detectors such as virus and spyware scanners. Unfortunately, both researchers and malware authors have demonstrated that these scanners, which use pattern matching to identify malware,(More)
Malware analysis is the process of determining the purpose and functionality of a given malware sample (such as a virus, worm, or Trojan horse). This process is a necessary step to be able to develop effective detection techniques for malicious code. In addition, it is an important prerequisite for the development of removal tools that can thoroughly delete(More)
The TIQ derivatives 2-methyl-6,7-dihydroxy-1,2,3,4-tetrahydroisoquinoline (2-MDTIQ) and 1-methyl-6,7-dihydroxy-1,2,3,4-tetrahydroisoquinoline (1-MDTIQ, salsolinol) were identified the first time as possible endogenous neurotoxins in parkinsonian but not in normal human lumbar cerebrospinal fluid by high performance liquid chromatography with electrochemical(More)
Horizontal and vertical eye movements were recorded and analysed with an infrared photoelectric technique in 12 healthy volunteers under various blood alcohol concentrations (0.0, 0.5, 1.0 g/kg body weight, [‰]). The predictive smooth-pursuit tracking and saccadic eye movements were studied in response to unpredictable target jumps and during scanning of a(More)
In earlier studies the dihydroxylated tetrahydroisoquinoline derivatives salsolinol and 2(N)-methyl-norsalsolinol (NMNorsal), a 2(N)-analogue of salsolinol, were identified as putative endogenous neurotoxins in patients with Parkinson's disease. Since a prominent blood-brain barrier (BBB) was described to exist for salsolinol, in the present study(More)
Online social networks such as Facebook, MySpace, and Orkut store large amounts of sensitive user data. While a user can legitimately assume that a social network provider adheres to strict privacy standards, we argue that it is unwise to trust third-party applications on these platforms in the same way. Although the social network provider would be in the(More)
The effects of the GABA(A) receptor antagonist bicuculline, the D2-like receptor antagonist sulpiride and the D1-like receptor antagonist SCH-23390 on the electrical high frequency stimulation (HFS)-evoked gamma-aminobutyric acid (GABA) and dopamine (DA) release were measured from slices of the rat striatum by means of HPLC method with electrochemical(More)
