Dynamic Analysis Approach for Malware Detection

Malware can use many techniques (packers, obfuscation, encryption and dynamic code load) to evade static analysis. However, dynamic analysis is robust to these evasion techniques and can provide a complementary detection approach for static analysis. In this lecture, Ori will cover many approaches of dynamic analysis used for the accurate detection of malware; Ori will also discuss the advantages and disadvantages associated with dynamic analysis. This lecture will also include a demonstration of several tools and methods that apply dynamic analysis for malware detection.

USBeat: On the Many Dangers of USB Devices

Universal Serial Bus (USB) has become the most popular and common standard to connect computer peripherals (including keyboards, pointing devices, digital cameras, printers, portable media players, disk drives, network adapters, smartphones, PDAs, and video game consoles) to personal computers, both to communicate and to supply electric power. Users tend to trust USB devices to do what they think the device is supposed to do. However, USB devices can be used to exfiltrate sensitive data, spread malicious code, steal the user's identity, stealthily change system settings and open back doors on the host, and even physically destroy it. In reality, USB devices are small computers that can be programmed to be anything. This lecture will survey the sophisticated USB attacks that have emerged over the last decade. We’ll begin by reviewing some of the basic USB concepts and then the attacks will be described and classified according to their objectives, device type, and the set of skills required for implementing them. The lecture will include a demonstration of several attacks, and Nitzan will discuss how they can be detected.
