Shared resources, such as the Internet, have created a highly interconnected cyber-infrastructure. Critical infrastructures in domains such as medical, power, telecommunications, and finance are highly dependent on information systems. These two factors have exposed our critical infrastructures to malicious attacks and accidental failures. Many malicious attacks are achieved by malicious code or malware, such as viruses and worms. Given the deleterious affects of malware on our cyber infrastructure, identifying malicious programs is an important goal. Unfortunately, malware detectors have not kept pace with the evasion techniques commonly used by hackers, i.e., the good guys are falling behind in the arms race.

Malware Detection captures the state of the art research in the area of malicious code detection, prevention and mitigation.

Shared resources, such as the Internet, have created a highly interconnected cyberinfrastructure. Critical infrastructures in domains such as medical, power, telecommunications, and finance are highly dependent on information systems. These two factors have exposed our critical infrastructures to malicious attacks and accidental failures. Disruption of services caused by such undesirable events can have catastrophic effects, including loss of human life, disruption of essential services, and huge financial losses. For example, the outbreak of the CodeRed virus infected more than 359,000 hosts, resulting in financial losses of approximately 2.6 billion dollars [10]. Given the devastating effect malicious code can have on our cyber infrastructure, identifying and containing malicious programs is an important goal.
