Presentation Title: Randomized/Obfuscated Text Detection
Synopsis: Recent malwares have been using obfuscation techniques to hide its code from Antivirus software. Making use of emulation is very effective but would probably result in a slow performing machine especially when your valid apps are getting scanned from malwares. Thus, before a full emulation can be done, a static detection can help minimize this slow performance. Detecting the existence of obfuscated text segregates valid applications from malwares. This topic shows different methods on how to determine if a certain text is rather randomized.
