Malware analysis is fundamental to security today. We can make use of methods and tools to detect and thus combat it. The purpose of this research area is to identify how we can study and detect malware more efficiently and more effectively across a variety of attack surfaces, including: mobile phones, desktop environments. Aspects of this research makes use of machine learning to automate the detection and analysis process.
