Date & Time: January 30, 2006 16:00
Venue: SIC 301, 'C' Block, 03rd Floor, KReSIT
Abstract:
Since the advent of the first computer virus, almost 20 years ago, creators of malicious code have devised increasingly complex schemes to prevent their programs from being detected by signature-based security software. These improvements can be at least partially attributed to the efforts of antivirus and security products. Each wave of new obfuscation techniques has spurred the creation of more advanced detection technologies, which has in turn led to the creation of even more complex threats. Throughout this co-evolution, security vendors have arguably had the upper hand - until now. The latest generation of threats employs a number of key techniques that have pushed existing scanning technologies to their limits. This talk takes a detailed look at key innovations in antivirus detection as well as related virus advancements over the past 20 years.
