RBACS: Rootkit Behavioral Analysis and Classification System
MetadataShow full item record
In this paper, we focus on rootkits, a special type of malicious software (malware) that operates in an obfuscated and stealthy mode to evade detection. Categorizing these rootkits will help in detecting future attacks against the business community. We first developed a theoretical framework for classifying rootkits. Based on our theoretical framework, we then proposed a new rootkit classification system and tested our system on a sample of rootkits that use inline function hooking. Our experimental results showed that our system could successfully categorize the sample using unsupervised clustering.
