Analysis of Feature Categories for Malware Visualization
Keywords:Features, Malware, Malware Visualization, Visualization Tools,
AbstractIt is important to know which features are more effective for certain visualization types. Furthermore, selecting an appropriate visualization tool plays a key role in descriptive, diagnostic, predictive and prescriptive analytics. Moreover, analyzing the activities of malicious scripts or codes is dependent on the extracted features. In this paper, the authors focused on reviewing and classifying the most common extracted features that have been used for malware visualization based on specified categories. This study examines the features categories and its usefulness for effective malware visualization. Additionally, it focuses on the common extracted features that have been used in the malware visualization domain. Therefore, the conducted literature review finding revealed that the features could be categorized into four main categories, namely, static, dynamic, hybrid, and application metadata. The contribution of this research paper is about feature selection for illustrating which features are effective with which visualization tools for malware visualization.
