Abstract

Cyber attacks against sensitive data have become as serious threats all over the world due to the rising applications of computer and information technology. New malware or malicious programs are released everyday by cyber criminals through the Internet in an attempt to steal or destroy important data. Hence, research on protecting data receives tremendous interest in the cyber community. In order to cope with new variants of malicious software, machine
learning techniques can be used for accurate classification and detection. This paper proposes an efficient scheme for malware detection for protecting sensitive data from malicious threats using data mining and machine learning techniques. Experimental results shows that the proposed approach gives
better performance compared to other similar methods.
