Towards understanding malware behaviour by the extraction of API calls

Alazab, Mamoun; Venkataraman, Sitalakshimi; Watters, Paul


One of the recent trends adopted by malware authors is to use packers or software tools that instigate code obfuscation in order to evade detection by antivirus scanners. With evasion techniques such as polymorphism and metamorphism malware is able to fool current detection techniques. Thus, security researchers and the anti-virus industry are facing a herculean task in extracting payloads hidden within packed executables. It is a common practice to use manual unpacking or static unpacking...[Show more]
