Symantec's chief antivirus researcher has written the definitive guide to contemporary virus threats, defense techniques, and analysis tools. Unlike most books on computer viruses, The Art of Computer Virus Research and Defense is a reference written strictly for white hats: IT and security professionals responsible for protecting their organizations against malware.
Peter Szor systematically covers everything you need to know, including virus behavior and classification, protection strategies, antivirus and worm-blocking techniques, and much more.
Szor presents the state-of-the-art in both malware and protection, providing the full technical detail that professionals need to handle increasingly complex attacks.
Along the way, he provides extensive information on code metamorphism and other emerging techniques, so you can anticipate and prepare for future threats. Szor also offers the most thorough and practical primer on virus analysis ever published—addressing everything from creating your own personal laboratory to automating the analysis process.
This book's coverage includes.
Classifying malware strategies for infection, in-memory operation, self-protection, payload delivery, exploitation, and more. Reverse-engineering malicious code with disassemblers, debuggers, emulators, and virtual machines.
Implementing technical defenses: Stay ahead with the world's most comprehensive technology and business learning platform.
From to , Szor wrote and maintained his own antivirus program, Pasteur.

The Art of Computer Virus Research and Defense. Peter Szor
Therefore, a deliberate tradeoff must be made between the two conflicting demands of reducing the losses caused by the virus and reducing the team size. In our opinion, the tradeoff problem is worthy of deep-going study.
To our knowledge, to date this problem has not been addressed mathematically. The key to solving the tradeoff problem is to accurately estimate the speed and extent of virus infections. Computer virus spreading dynamics as an emerging interdiscipline is devoted to gaining insight into the consequence of computer viruses through modeling and analyzing their spreading process.
Since the seminal work by Kephart and White [ 11 , 12 ], large numbers of computer virus spreading models, ranging from the population-level spreading models [ 13 — 17 ] and the network-level spreading models [ 18 — 22 ] to the individual-level spreading models [ 23 — 30 ], have been proposed.
In particular, a special type of spreading models known as the Susceptible-Infected SI models [ 31 , 32 ] are especially suited to capturing the spreading process of a new digital virus before the relevant antivirus is released. This article addresses the above-mentioned tradeoff problem. First, an individual-level virus spreading model, which is known as the individual-level SI model, is proposed to capture the spreading process of the virus before the appearance of its natural enemy, which is then utilized to assess the expected losses caused by the virus during the development period of an antivirus aiming at the virus.
Then, the tradeoff problem is modeled as a discrete optimization problem. On this basis, the influences of different factors, including the infection force, the infection function, the available manpower, the alarm threshold, the antivirus development effort and the network topology, on the optimal team size are examined through computer simulations.
The subsequent materials of this work are organized as follows. Section 2 presents the individual-level SI model, and models the tradeoff problem.There is very little trustworthy information about computer viruses.
