Next SSL Seminar will take place on Thursday, December 20th at 1.30 pm in room C005.
Tayssir Touili (CNRS – LIPN) will give a presentation entitled “On static malware detection”.
The number of malware is growing extraordinarily fast. A malware may bring serious damage.
Thus, it is crucial to have efficient up-to-date virus detectors. A robust malware detection technique needs to check the behavior (not
the syntax) of the program without executing it. We show in this talk how using behavior signatures allow to efficiently detect malwares in a completely static way. We applied our techniques to detect several malwares. Our tool was able to detect more than 800 malwares. Several of these malwares could not be detected by well-known anti-viruses such as Avira, Avast, Norton, Kaspersky and McAfee
