In my previous blog I discussed procedure prologue and procedure epilogue techniques to evade security systems. We recently came across one more set of fake-alert samples that use a different technique to evade detection. This technique is related […]

Encryption, packers, wrappers, and other methods were effective for various lengths of time. But eventually antimalware programs gained detection techniques to combat these steps. Malware authors next started frequently changing code and other data; now malware binaries are […]
