A Behavior-Based Malware Variant Classification Technique

Guanghui Liang, Jianmin Pang, and Chao Dai
Abstract—The research on detection malware variants attracts much attention in recent years. However current variant classification methods either are interfered by some confusion technologies or have a high time or space complexity. In this paper, a classification technique using dynamic analysis based on behavior profile is proposed. We capture API calls and other essential information of running malware, then establish their multilayer dependency chain according to the dependency relationship of these function calls. In order to deal with the confusion, we remove sequence confusion, sequence noise, and other confusions to optimize the multilayer dependency chain. Finally, a similarity comparison algorithm is used to identify the degree of similarity between malware variants. The experimental results demonstrate that our classification technique is feasible and effective.

Index Terms—Malware, variants, dependency chain.
