Mate! Are You Really Aware? An Explainability-Guided Testing Framework for Robustness of Malware Detectors

1 code implementation19 Nov 2021 Ruoxi Sun, Minhui Xue, Gareth Tyson, Tian Dong, Shaofeng Li, Shuo Wang, Haojin Zhu, Seyit Camtepe, Surya Nepal

We find that (i) commercial antivirus engines are vulnerable to AMM-guided test cases; (ii) the ability of a manipulated malware generated using one detector to evade detection by another detector (i. e., transferability) depends on the overlap of features with large AMM values between the different detectors; and (iii) AMM values effectively measure the fragility of features (i. e., capability of feature-space manipulation to flip the prediction results) and explain the robustness of malware detectors facing evasion attacks.
