Simseer and bugwise are online web services that perform binary program analysis: simseer identifies similarity between submitted executables based on similarity in the control flow of each binary. A software similarity service provides benefit in identifying malware variants and families, discovering software theft, and revealing plagiarism of software programs. Simseer additionally performs code packing detection and automated unpacking of hidden code using application-level emulation. Finally, simseer uses the similarity information from a sample set to identify program relationships and families through visualization of an evolutionary tree.
