Malware Detection is a significant part of endpoint security including workstations, servers, cloud instances, and mobile devices. Malware Detection is used to detect and identify malicious activities caused by malware. With the increase in the variety of malware activities on CMS based websites such as malicious malware redirects on WordPress site (Aka, WordPress Malware Redirect Hack) where the site redirects to spam, being the most widespread, the need for automatic detection and classifier amplifies as well. The signature-based Malware Detection system is commonly used for existing malware that has a signature but it is not suitable for unknown malware or zero-day malware

DeepSign: Deep Learning for Automatic Malware Signature Generation and Classification

nahmiasd/DeepSign 21 Nov 2017

While conventional signature and token based methods for malware detection do not detect a majority of new variants for existing malware, the results presented in this paper show that signatures generated by the DBN allow for an accurate classification of new malware variants.

Efficient Formal Safety Analysis of Neural Networks
