The goal of this research is to develop a method to detect malicious code (e.g. computer viruses, worms, Trojan horses, and time/logic bombs) and security-related vulnerabilities in system programs. The Malicious Code Filter (MCF) is a programmable static analysis tool developed for this purpose. It allows the examination of a program before installation, thereby avoiding damage a malicious program might inflict. This paper summarizes our work over the last few years that led us to develop MCF.
