"Automated Malware Analysis"

(Vortrag im Rahmen der "Distinguished Lecture Series" des "Max Planck Instituts für Software-Systeme")

Malicious software (malware) is an important threat and root cause of many security problems on the Internet. In this talk, I will discuss our recent efforts on malware analysis, detection, and mitigation. First, I will introduce our infrastructure to collect and analyze malicious code samples. Then, I will present techniques to improve the quality of the results produced by automated, dynamic malware analysis systems. Finally, I will discuss ways in which these results can be leveraged for the detection and mitigation of malicious code.
