Example text

Therefore, its limitation is because of the different malware dependencies that enable it to run successfully in a target system. They are the following: ▶▶ ▶▶ ▶▶ ▶▶ ▶▶ Program dependencies User dependencies Environment dependencies Timing dependencies Event dependencies If one of these dependencies is not satisfied, the malware may not execute any or all of its functions. If the malware does not run because of an unsatisfied condition or dependency, no data will be collected during dynamic analysis.

Executables ▶▶ Macros ▶▶ Scripts Executables In the early years of malware, almost all infectors were executables. They were either a COM file or an EXE file. , COM infects COM only, and EXE infects EXE only. , COM infects both COM and EXE, and EXE infects both COM and EXE. Regardless of what file type the computer virus is, it follows certain patterns when it comes to infecting or attaching its code to the host file. These patterns of infection serve as a way to classify viruses and file infectors.

NOTE Static analysis can easily be beaten by packed and encrypted file. This is why file unpacking and decryption are important in the fight against malware.
