2 Advanced Polymorphic Techniques

Authors: Philippe Beaucamps

Abstract:

Nowadays viruses use polymorphic techniques to mutate their code on each replication, thus evading detection by antiviruses. However detection by emulation can defeat simple polymorphism: thus metamorphic techniques are used which thoroughly change the viral code, even after decryption. We briefly detail this evolution of virus protection techniques against detection and then study the METAPHOR virus, today's most advanced metamorphic virus.

1 Obfuscation Studio Executive

Authors: Siarhei Petryk, Vyacheslav Yarmolik

Abstract:

New software protection product called “Obfuscation Studio" is presented in the paper. Several obfuscating modules that are already implemented are described. Some theoretical data is presented, that shows the potency and effectiveness of described obfuscation methods. “Obfuscation Studio" is being implemented for protecting programs written for .NET platform, but the described methods can also be interesting for other applications.

Keywords: coupling, obfuscation, predicates, renaming
