SeCom: A Novel Approach for Malware Confiscation in OS Level Virtual Machines

Virtual Machines (VMs) are based on the specifications of a presumptive computer. It is an independent instance and performs the function as like the original host machine. It can be created upon use and disposed upon the completion of the tasks or the detection of error. One of the main demerits of virtual machine is that if there is no malicious activity, the user has to redo all of the work in her actual workspace since there is no easy way to commit. So, a lightweight commitment approach called SeCom have been proposed, which eliminates the malicious program at the end of virtual machine termination i.e. while committing the benign data.
