Detecting Malicious Codes: A Signature-Based Solution
Malicious codes are one of the most destructive pieces of software that can attack a computer or network. The authors' are self-duplicating and self-propagating, so their behavior is repetitive and automated. Different methods of detecting such attackers have been proposed. The paper is presenting a method to detect this software based on the digital signature of the malware. Their aim is to obtain a dedicated detection scheme for different state-of-the-art digital signatures. Such detection scheme should be optimal from performance point of view.
