I haven’t blogged for a few months. I’ve been busy finishing a prototype malware classification system based on flowgraph similarity. That has resulted in submitting a paper to the 8th Australasian Symposium on Parallel and Distributed Computing (AusPDC 2010) The system I developed and discussed in that submission is not fast enough for realtime use in desktop and EMail gateway AntiVirus.  To remedy that, I’ve also been working on a simpler flowgraph based classification system.  It detects less malware variants but performs in near realtime.  I’ve finished a basic prototype and hope to write up my results and submit to an ACM conference by the end of September.  I will write up more details about both systems after publication, which will be at earliest in January 2010.
