A case study on Stuxnet and Flame Malware

Authors: K F Morton, David Grace

A vast numberof malware is packed by packers. Obfuscation tools are not only cost effective and readily available but also provide an effective camouflage to malware code. Unpacking and analyzing the malicious code may appear aoptimum solution to this problem; but provided with gigantic number of malware being released every single day, this is not a tranquil peace of work for security companies and researchers. In this paper we aim to provide a comprehensive summary of packer problem with practical demonstration of their effectiveness and we will be reviewing various generic techniques to handle this problem.
