To protect their digital assets from malware attacks, most users and companies rely on anti-virus (AV) software. But AVs’ protection is a full-time task and AVs are engaged in a cat-and-mouse game where malware, e.g., through obfuscation and polymorphism, denial of service attacks and malformed packets and parameters, try to circumvent AV defences or make them crash. On the other hand, AVs react by complementing signature-based with anomaly or behavioral detection, and by using OS protection, standard code, and binary protection techniques. Further, malware counter-act, for instance by using adversarial inputs to avoid detection, et cetera. This paper investigat...
