Machine learning for malware detection and classification

Malware classification can be used for both malware and forensics related tasks. This 3 part article detailes the steps and concepts required to build your own malware classifier and an anti-spam engine. Here android malware is being used as illustration and the coding is done in C#. This should encourage you to build your malware classifier and share your results.

Re: Machine learning for malware detection and classification

Really? All four of your first posts are links to ISI articles? Spam like this only deters me from visiting your site. Purchase ad space if you're not going to contribute anything more than blog spam.

Re: Machine learning for malware detection and classification

I don't think I have shared the article with the intention of spamming this forum. I have shared other posts as well.
This is my latest article that I wanted to get feedback on. I joined the forum just 2 days back and I just wanted to contribute with what I have... \if you have any suggestions as to what kind of articles/posts are valid then please do so :)

btw I want to share another article that cracks a shareware called pdf password remover from my blog -
http://victormarak.wordpress.com/2013/0 ... d-remover/

I hope the intent and the activity itself wont constitute spam...

Re: Machine learning for malware detection and classification

Agree with other also your last post I think is against the rules maybe you should read them again. This site is about ethical hacking so tutorials on how to get software for free no matter how informative they are should not be posted here.

Admin please correct me if I am wrong..

Re: Machine learning for malware detection and classification

Hey guys, I would appreciate it if you could take it a little easy. The second article is my blog- with the intention of a shareware application that charges people for essentially free tools running behind the scene, the GUI is just a facade. I surmise much of the cracking crowd would appeal to senses of that sort. Also I agree hacking in general is more like pentesting where the main tools are not your debugger/disassembler. So why is it all taken in the wrong vein. Given the amount of software on torrents/topsites would you really think that a single article would be damaging enough for the industry. I am sure many of us download free software from the net regardless of our domain of work or skillset in this area. I don't consider myself a pirate, though whistle blowing is something I would love to do more often.

I am just looking to contribute with what I have currently being a new forum member (not new to reversing). If published articles links posting constitute spam and personal disclosures are spam as well, I am in bit of a doubt as to the purpose of a knowledge forum :)
I do look forward to being more active in the forums..

You could take a look at other articles at the wordpress.com site under the malware/reversing posts. I have posted a few edited reports of malware I had analysed while I started in the anti-malware biz quite some time back...
