Current Trends and the Future of Metamorphic Malware Detection

  title={Current Trends and the Future of Metamorphic Malware Detection},
  author={Shahid Alam and Issa Traor{\'e} and Ibrahim Sogukpinar},
Dynamic binary obfuscation or metamorphism is a technique where a malware never keeps the same sequence of opcodes in the memory. This stealthy mutation technique helps a malware evade detection by today's signature-based anti-malware programs. This paper analyzes the current trends, provides future directions and reasons about some of the basic characteristics of a system for providing real-time detection of metamorphic malware. Our emphasis is on the most recent advancements and the… CONTINUE READING
