Behavior-based analysis of emerging malware families involves finding suspicious patterns in large collections of execution traces. This activity cannot be automated for previously unknown malware families and thus malware analysts would benefit greatly from integrating visual analytics methods in their process. However existing approaches are limited to(More)
In today’s interconnected digital world, targeted attacks have become a serious threat to conventional computer systems and critical infrastructure alike. Many researchers contribute to the fight against network intrusions or malicious software by proposing novel detection systems or analysis methods. However, few of these solutions have a particular focus(More)
Behavior-based analysis of dynamically executed binaries has become a widely used technique for the identification of suspected malware. Most solutions rely on function call patterns to determine whether a sample is exhibiting malicious behavior. These system and API calls are usually regarded individually and do not consider contextual information or(More)
Targeted attacks on IT systems are a rising threat against the confidentiality of sensitive data and the availability of systems and infrastructures. Planning for the eventuality of a data breach or sabotage attack has become an increasingly difficult task with the emergence of advanced persistent threats (APTs), a class of highly sophisticated(More)
Behavior-based analysis of dynamically executed software has become an established technique to identifying and analyzing potential malware. Most solutions rely on API or system call patterns to determine whether a sample is exhibiting malicious activity. Analysis is usually performed on demand and offers little insight into the current system state. In(More)
