Classification of Methamorphic Malware with Deep Learning (LSTM)


Nowadays, anti-virus applications using traditional signature-based detection methods fail to detect metamorphic malware. For this reason, recent studies on the detection and classification of malicious software address the behavior of malware. In this study, an LSTM based classification method was developed by using API calls of 8 different types of real malware. With this method, the behaviors of the malware types on the operating system are modeled.Classification of Methamorphic Malware with Deep Learning (LSTM)
