    Outsmarting Android Malware with Cutting-Edge Feature Engineering and Machine Learning Techniques

    Ahsan Wajahat1, Jingsha He1, Nafei Zhu1, Tariq Mahmood2,3, Tanzila Saba2, Amjad Rehman Khan2, Faten S. Alamri4,*

    CMC-Computers, Materials & Continua, Vol.79, No.1, pp. 651-673, 2024, DOI:10.32604/cmc.2024.047530

    Abstract The growing usage of Android smartphones has led to a significant rise in incidents of Android malware and privacy breaches. This escalating security concern necessitates the development of advanced technologies capable of automatically detecting and mitigating malicious activities in Android applications (apps). Such technologies are crucial for safeguarding user data and maintaining the integrity of mobile devices in an increasingly digital world. Current methods employed to detect sensitive data leaks in Android apps are hampered by two major limitations they require substantial computational resources and are prone to a high frequency of false positives. This means that while attempting to… More >

    An Early Warning Model of Telecommunication Network Fraud Based on User Portrait

    Wen Deng1, Guangjun Liang1,2,3,*, Chenfei Yu1, Kefan Yao1, Chengrui Wang1, Xuan Zhang1

    CMC-Computers, Materials & Continua, Vol.75, No.1, pp. 1561-1576, 2023, DOI:10.32604/cmc.2023.035016

    Abstract With the frequent occurrence of telecommunications and network fraud crimes in recent years, new frauds have emerged one after another which has caused huge losses to the people. However, due to the lack of an effective preventive mechanism, the police are often in a passive position. Using technologies such as web crawlers, feature engineering, deep learning, and artificial intelligence, this paper proposes a user portrait fraud warning scheme based on Weibo public data. First, we perform preliminary screening and cleaning based on the keyword “defrauded” to obtain valid fraudulent user Identity Documents (IDs). The basic information and account information of… More >

    A Multi-Module Machine Learning Approach to Detect Tax Fraud

    N. Alsadhan*

    Computer Systems Science and Engineering, Vol.46, No.1, pp. 241-253, 2023, DOI:10.32604/csse.2023.033375

    Abstract Tax fraud is one of the substantial issues affecting governments around the world. It is defined as the intentional alteration of information provided on a tax return to reduce someone’s tax liability. This is done by either reducing sales or increasing purchases. According to recent studies, governments lose over $500 billion annually due to tax fraud. A loss of this magnitude motivates tax authorities worldwide to implement efficient fraud detection strategies. Most of the work done in tax fraud using machine learning is centered on supervised models. A significant drawback of this approach is that it requires tax returns that… More >

    Energy Theft Detection in Smart Grids with Genetic Algorithm-Based Feature Selection

    Muhammad Umair1,*, Zafar Saeed1, Faisal Saeed2, Hiba Ishtiaq1, Muhammad Zubair1, Hala Abdel Hameed3,4

    CMC-Computers, Materials & Continua, Vol.74, No.3, pp. 5431-5446, 2023, DOI:10.32604/cmc.2023.033884

    Abstract As big data, its technologies, and application continue to advance, the Smart Grid (SG) has become one of the most successful pervasive and fixed computing platforms that efficiently uses a data-driven approach and employs efficient information and communication technology (ICT) and cloud computing. As a result of the complicated architecture of cloud computing, the distinctive working of advanced metering infrastructures (AMI), and the use of sensitive data, it has become challenging to make the SG secure. Faults of the SG are categorized into two main categories, Technical Losses (TLs) and Non-Technical Losses (NTLs). Hardware failure, communication issues, ohmic losses, and… More >

    Diabetes Prediction Using Derived Features and Ensembling of Boosting Classifiers

    R. Rajkamal1,*, Anitha Karthi2, Xiao-Zhi Gao3

    CMC-Computers, Materials & Continua, Vol.73, No.1, pp. 2013-2033, 2022, DOI:10.32604/cmc.2022.027142

    Abstract Diabetes is increasing commonly in people’s daily life and represents an extraordinary threat to human well-being. Machine Learning (ML) in the healthcare industry has recently made headlines. Several ML models are developed around different datasets for diabetic prediction. It is essential for ML models to predict diabetes accurately. Highly informative features of the dataset are vital to determine the capability factors of the model in the prediction of diabetes. Feature engineering (FE) is the way of taking forward in yielding highly informative features. Pima Indian Diabetes Dataset (PIDD) is used in this work, and the impact of informative features in… More >

    From Similarities to Probabilities: Feature Engineering for Predicting Drugs’ Adverse Reactions

    Nahla H. Barakat*, Ahmed H. ElSabbagh

    Intelligent Automation & Soft Computing, Vol.32, No.2, pp. 1207-1224, 2022, DOI:10.32604/iasc.2022.022104

    Abstract Social media recently became convenient platforms for different groups with common concerns to share their experiences, including Adverse Drug Reactions (ADRs). In this paper, we propose a two stage intelligent algorithm which we call “Simi_to_Prob”, that utilizes social media forums; for ranking ADRs, and evaluating the ADRs prevalence considering different age and gender groups as its first stage. In the second stage, ADRs are predicted utilizing a different data set from the Food and Drug Administration (FDA). In particular, Natural Language Processing (NLP) is used on social media to extract ranked lists of ADRs, which are then validated using novel… More >

    Epilepsy Radiology Reports Classification Using Deep Learning Networks

    Sengul Bayrak1,2, Eylem Yucel2,*, Hidayet Takci3

    CMC-Computers, Materials & Continua, Vol.70, No.2, pp. 3589-3607, 2022, DOI:10.32604/cmc.2022.018742

    Abstract The automatic and accurate classification of Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) radiology report is essential for the analysis and interpretation epilepsy and non-epilepsy. Since the majority of MRI radiology reports are unstructured, the manual information extraction is time-consuming and requires specific expertise. In this paper, a comprehensive method is proposed to classify epilepsy and non-epilepsy real brain MRI radiology text reports automatically. This method combines the Natural Language Processing technique and statistical Machine Learning methods. 122 real MRI radiology text reports (97 epilepsy, 25 non-epilepsy) are studied by our proposed method which consists of the following steps: (i) for a given… More >

    TLSmell: Direct Identification on Malicious HTTPs Encryption Traffic with Simple Connection-Specific Indicators

    Zhengqiu Weng1,2, Timing Chen1,*, Tiantian Zhu1, Hang Dong1, Dan Zhou1, Osama Alfarraj3

    Computer Systems Science and Engineering, Vol.37, No.1, pp. 105-119, 2021, DOI:10.32604/csse.2021.015074

    Abstract Internet traffic encryption is a very common traffic protection method. Most internet traffic is protected by the encryption protocol called transport layer security (TLS). Although traffic encryption can ensure the security of communication, it also enables malware to hide its information and avoid being detected. At present, most of the malicious traffic detection methods are aimed at the unencrypted ones. There are some problems in the detection of encrypted traffic, such as high false positive rate, difficulty in feature extraction, and insufficient practicability. The accuracy and effectiveness of existing methods need to be improved. In this paper, we present TLSmell,… More >
