Malware Pattern Scanning Schemes Secure Against Black-box Analysis

  title={Malware Pattern Scanning Schemes Secure Against Black-box Analysis},
  author={Eric Filiol},
  journal={Journal in Computer Virology},
As a general rule, copycats produce most of malware variants from an original malware strain. For this purpose, they widely perform black-box analyses of commercial scanners aiming at extracting malware detection patterns. In this paper, we first study the malware detection pattern extraction problem from a complexity point of view and provide the results of a wide-scale study of commercial scanners’ black-box analysis. These results clearly show that most of the tested commercial products fail… CONTINUE READING
