Malware Classification

26 papers with code • 2 benchmarks • 1 datasets

Malware Classification is the process of assigning a malware sample to a specific malware family. Malware within a family shares similar properties that can be used to create signatures for detection and classification. Signatures can be categorized as static or dynamic based on how they are extracted. A static signature can be based on a byte-code sequence, binary assembly instruction, or an imported Dynamic Link Library (DLL). Dynamic signatures can be based on file system activities, terminal commands, network communications, or function and system call sequences.

A Framework for Enhancing Deep Neural Networks Against Adversarial Malware

deqangss/aics2019_challenge_adv_mal_defense 15 Apr 2020

By conducting experiments with the Drebin Android malware dataset, we show that the framework can achieve a 98. 49\% accuracy (on average) against grey-box attacks, where the attacker knows some information about the defense and the defender knows some information about the attack, and an 89. 14% accuracy (on average) against the more capable white-box attacks, where the attacker knows everything about the defense and the defender knows some information about the attack.
