Unknown malcode detection-a chronological evaluation Conference Paper uri icon

abstract

  • Abstract: Signature-based anti-viruses are very accurate, but are limited in detecting new malicious code. Dozens of new malicious codes are created every day, and the rate is expected to increase in coming years. To extend the generalization to detect unknown malicious code, heuristic methods are used; however, these are not successful enough. Recently, classification algorithms were used successfully for the detection of unknown malicious code. We earlier investigated the optimized conditions in which highest-level …
