Welcome to the special issue of Intrusion and Malware detection. Detection of Intrusions and Malware remains a serious problem in the realm of computer and communications security. These include viruses, spam, phishing, spyware, botnets, and other Web attacks. Such security attacks are no longer confined to traditional computer networks or the internet, but are now spreading to other systems such as cyber-physical and automotive systems. To meet the increasing demand for safety, intrusion and malware detection need to provide users with the most timely and effective threat protection with the least amount of complexity. Security researchers predict over 20,000 new malware per hour by 2015, driving vendors to develop newer and faster paradigms to effectively protect their customers.
