Abstract Some malware are sophisticated with polymorphic techniques such as self-mutation and emulation based analysis evasion. Most anti-malware techniques are overwhelmed by the polymorphic malware threats that self-mutate with different variants at every attack. This research aims to contribute to the detection of malicious codes, especially polymorphic malware by utilizing advanced static and advanced dynamic analyses for extraction of more informative key features of a malware through code analysis, memory  Read more
