As sophisticated tools that combine static and dynamic analysis become more ubiquitous, cybercriminals are developing increasingly-evasive malware components that actively counteract analysis and behavior identification. Is this another arms race? Or is it possible to define, quantify, and identify "evasiveness" and use it as a way to detect malicious intent? This talk presents an overview of the problem and how it's been attacked from both industry and academia.

Presenter: Giovanni Vigna, CTO, Lastline

 What will you learn by viewing Giovanni's video on chasing evasive malware

  • Malware (both web-based and binary) is in continuous evolution
  • Evasive malware is increasing in quantity and sophistication
  • Most sandbox-based anti-malware approaches can be easily bypassed
  • There is a need for novel techniques that can identify evasive behaviour
