Genetic & Evolutionary Feature Selection for Author Identification of HTML Associated with Malware

Henry C. Williams, Joi N. Carter, Willie L. Campbell, Kaushik Roy, and Gerry V. Dozier
Abstract—Malicious software, also known as malware, is a huge problem that costs consumers billions of dollars each year. To solve this problem, a significant amount of research has been dedicated towards detecting malware. In this paper, we introduce a genetic and evolutionary feature selection technique for the identification of HTML code associated with malware. We believe that there may be an association between malware and the HTML code that it is embedded in. Our results show that this technique outperforms previous techniques in terms of recognition accuracy as well as the total number of features needed for recognition.

Index Terms—Authorship classification, biometrics, feature extraction, genetic and evolutionary computation (GEC), malware.
