Example text

It must consist of an operating system that the malware is written for and must have most, if not all, of the dependencies the malware needs to execute properly. Dynamic analysis tools, also known as system monitoring tools, are the ones monitoring the malware test environment for any changes made by the malware to the target system. Some of the changes that are monitored and recorded include changes in the file system, modifications in configuration files, and any other relevant changes that are triggered by the malware’s execution.

As mentioned in the previous section, this can range from 30 seconds to a few minutes. The more sandboxes there are, the more malware the automated system can process. The processing is done in parallel, so if an automated system has 10 sandboxes and each is configured to run malware in 30 seconds, then it can process 10 malware in 30 seconds, which equates to 28,800 malware processed per day (assuming an ideal situation where each system is utilized and there is no downtime). LINGO Automated malware analysis systems are also known as automated sandbox systems or simply sandbox.

They were either a COM file or an EXE file. , COM infects COM only, and EXE infects EXE only. , COM infects both COM and EXE, and EXE infects both COM and EXE. Regardless of what file type the computer virus is, it follows certain patterns when it comes to infecting or attaching its code to the host file. These patterns of infection serve as a way to classify viruses and file infectors. They are the following: ▶▶ Overwriting viruses ▶▶ Companion viruses ▶▶ Parasitic viruses An overwriting virus is the most destructive of all file infectors because, as the name suggests, the virus overwrites the host code with its own.
