    K. Santosh Jhansi1,2,*, P. Ravi Kiran Varma2, Sujata Chakravarty3

    CMC-Computers, Materials & Continua, Vol.73, No.3, pp. 6327-6345, 2022, DOI:10.32604/cmc.2022.030878

    Abstract Malware Security Intelligence constitutes the analysis of applications and their associated metadata for possible security threats. Application Programming Interfaces (API) calls contain valuable information that can help with malware identification. The malware analysis with reduced feature space helps for the efficient identification of malware. The goal of this research is to find the most informative features of API calls to improve the android malware detection accuracy. Three swarm optimization methods, viz., Ant Lion Optimization (ALO), Cuckoo Search Optimization (CSO), and Firefly Optimization (FO) are applied to API calls using auto-encoders for identification of most influential More >

    Randomized MILP framework for Securing Virtual Machines from Malware Attacks

    R. Mangalagowri1,*, Revathi Venkataraman2

    Intelligent Automation & Soft Computing, Vol.35, No.2, pp. 1565-1580, 2023, DOI:10.32604/iasc.2023.026360

    Abstract Cloud computing involves remote server deployments with public network infrastructures that allow clients to access computational resources. Virtual Machines (VMs) are supplied on requests and launched without interactions from service providers. Intruders can target these servers and establish malicious connections on VMs for carrying out attacks on other clustered VMs. The existing system has issues with execution time and false-positive rates. Hence, the overall system performance is degraded considerably. The proposed approach is designed to eliminate Cross-VM side attacks and VM escape and hide the server’s position so that the opponent cannot track the target… More >

    Optimal Unification of Static and Dynamic Features for Smartphone Security Analysis

    Sumit Kumar1,*, S. Indu2, Gurjit Singh Walia1

    Intelligent Automation & Soft Computing, Vol.35, No.1, pp. 1035-1051, 2023, DOI:10.32604/iasc.2023.024469

    Abstract Android Smartphones are proliferating extensively in the digital world due to their widespread applications in a myriad of fields. The increased popularity of the android platform entices malware developers to design malicious apps to achieve their malevolent intents. Also, static analysis approaches fail to detect run-time behaviors of malicious apps. To address these issues, an optimal unification of static and dynamic features for smartphone security analysis is proposed. The proposed solution exploits both static and dynamic features for generating a highly distinct unified feature vector using graph based cross-diffusion strategy. Further, a unified feature is More >

    A Learning Model to Detect Android C&C Applications Using Hybrid Analysis

    Attia Qammar1, Ahmad Karim1,*, Yasser Alharbi2, Mohammad Alsaffar2, Abdullah Alharbi2

    Computer Systems Science and Engineering, Vol.43, No.3, pp. 915-930, 2022, DOI:10.32604/csse.2022.023652

    Abstract Smartphone devices particularly Android devices are in use by billions of people everywhere in the world. Similarly, this increasing rate attracts mobile botnet attacks which is a network of interconnected nodes operated through the command and control (C&C) method to expand malicious activities. At present, mobile botnet attacks launched the Distributed denial of services (DDoS) that causes to steal of sensitive data, remote access, and spam generation, etc. Consequently, various approaches are defined in the literature to detect mobile botnet attacks using static or dynamic analysis. In this paper, a novel hybrid model, the combination More >

    Detecting IoT Botnet in 5G Core Network Using Machine Learning

    Ye-Eun Kim1, Min-Gyu Kim2, Hwankuk Kim2,*

    CMC-Computers, Materials & Continua, Vol.72, No.3, pp. 4467-4488, 2022, DOI:10.32604/cmc.2022.026581

    Abstract As Internet of Things (IoT) devices with security issues are connected to 5G mobile networks, the importance of IoT Botnet detection research in mobile network environments is increasing. However, the existing research focused on AI-based IoT Botnet detection research in wired network environments. In addition, the existing research related to IoT Botnet detection in ML-based mobile network environments have been conducted up to 4G. Therefore, this paper conducts a study on ML-based IoT Botnet traffic detection in the 5G core network. The binary and multiclass classification was performed to compare simple normal/malicious detection and normal/three-type More >

    CMC-Computers, Materials & Continua, Vol.72, No.3, pp. 5909-5923, 2022, DOI:10.32604/cmc.2022.026395

    Abstract The smart phone market is continuously increasing and there are more than 6 billion of smart phone users worldwide with the aid of the 5G technology. Among them Android occupies 87% of the market share. Naturally, the widespread Android smartphones has drawn the attention of the attackers who implement and spread malware. Consequently, currently the number of malware targeting Android mobile phones is ever increasing. Therefore, it is a critical task to find and detect malicious behaviors of malware in a timely manner. However, unfortunately, attackers use a variety of obfuscation techniques for malware to… More >

    Ransomware Classification Framework Using the Behavioral Performance Visualization of Execution Objects

    Jun-Seob Kim, Ki-Woong Park*

    CMC-Computers, Materials & Continua, Vol.72, No.2, pp. 3401-3424, 2022, DOI:10.32604/cmc.2022.026621

    Abstract A ransomware attack that interrupted the operation of Colonial Pipeline (a large U.S. oil pipeline company), showed that security threats by malware have become serious enough to affect industries and social infrastructure rather than individuals alone. The agents and characteristics of attacks should be identified, and appropriate strategies should be established accordingly in order to respond to such attacks. For this purpose, the first task that must be performed is malware classification. Malware creators are well aware of this and apply various concealment and avoidance techniques, making it difficult to classify malware. This study focuses… More >

    Behavioral Intrusion Prediction Model on Bayesian Network over Healthcare Infrastructure

    Mohammad Hafiz Mohd Yusof1,*, Abdullah Mohd Zin2, Nurhizam Safie Mohd Satar2

    CMC-Computers, Materials & Continua, Vol.72, No.2, pp. 2445-2466, 2022, DOI:10.32604/cmc.2022.023571

    Abstract Due to polymorphic nature of malware attack, a signature-based analysis is no longer sufficient to solve polymorphic and stealth nature of malware attacks. On the other hand, state-of-the-art methods like deep learning require labelled dataset as a target to train a supervised model. This is unlikely to be the case in production network as the dataset is unstructured and has no label. Hence an unsupervised learning is recommended. Behavioral study is one of the techniques to elicit traffic pattern. However, studies have shown that existing behavioral intrusion detection model had a few issues which had… More >
