Fine-grained code analysis in the context of malware is a complex and challenging task that provides insight into malware code-layers (polymorphic/metamorphic), its data encryption/ decryption engine, its memory layout etc., important pieces of information that can be used to detect and counter the malware and its variants. Current research in fine-grained code analysis can be categorized into static and dynamic approaches. Static approaches have been tailored towards malware and allow exhaustive fine-grained malicious code analysis, but lack support for self-modifying code, have limitations related to code-obfuscations and face the undecidability problem.
