Automatic Binary Execution Environment based on Real-machines for Intelligent Malware Analysis
Cho, Homook; Yoon, KwanSik; Choi, Sangyong; Kim, Yong-Min;
There exist many threats in cyber space, however current anti-virus software and other existing solutions do not effectively respond to malware that has become more complex and sophisticated. It was shown experimentally that it is possible for the proposed approach to provide an automatic execution environment for the detection of malicious behavior of active malware, comparing the virtual-machine environment with the real-machine environment based on user interaction. Moreover, the results show that it is possible to provide a dynamic analysis environment in order to analyze the intelligent malware effectively, through the comparison of malicious behavior activity in an automatic binary execution environment based on real-machines and the malicious behavior activity in a virtual-machine environment.
