Malware is in continuous evolution. As new countermeasures are deployed, cybercriminals adapt and create malware samples that can evade these defenses, like invisible ninjas attacking at night.
This talk describes the evolution of malware, and describes research in fighting this ever-changing threat, focusing in particular on the detection of evasive behavior.
