The paper describes formalization of existing code mutation techniques widely used in a viruses (polymorphism and metamorphism) by means of formal grammars and automatons. New model of metamorphic viruses and new classification of this type of viruses are suggested. The statement about undetectable viruses of this type is proved. In that paper are shown iterative approach toward construct complex formal grammars from the simplest initial rules for building metamorphic generator. Also there are… CONTINUE READING
