Malware continues to be a critical concern for everyone from home users to enterprises. Today, most devices are connected through networks to the Internet. Therefore, malicious code can easily and rapidly spread. The objective of this paper is to examine how malicious portable executable (PE) files can be detected on the network by utilizing machine learning algorithms. The efficiency and effectiveness of the network detection rely on the number of features and the learning algorithms. In this… CONTINUE READING
