This talk will present our research project on .Net file clustering based on their respective basic blocks and the parallel that can be made with DNA sequence variation analysis. We implemented a system that extracts the basic blocks on each file and creates clusters based on them. We also developed an IDA plugin to make use of that data and speed up our analysis of .Net files.
Andrei Saygo, Eoin Ward and Mathieu Letourneau all work as Anti-Malware Security Engineers in the AM Scan team of Microsoft’s Product Release & Security Services group in Dublin, Ireland.
