Toward Automated Dynamic Malware Analysis Using CWSandbox

  title={Toward Automated Dynamic Malware Analysis Using CWSandbox},
  author={Carsten Willems and Thorsten Holz and Felix C. Freiling},
  journal={IEEE Security & Privacy},
Malware is notoriously difficult to combat because it appears and spreads so quickly. In this article, we describe the design and implementation of CWSandbox, a malware analysis tool that fulfills our three design criteria of automation, effectiveness, and correctness for the Win32 family of operating systems
