Cyber-Detect: a novel approach for identifying viruses

Cyber-Detect is a spin-off from the Lorraine Research Laboratory in Computer Science and its Applications (LORIA)1CNRS/Université de Lorraine/INRIA. This start-up company has developed a toolbox for the analysis and detection of malwares. It can reveal unknown attacks, relying on a graph of pathways that a program tries to take, i.e. a morphological analysis. These abstractions are constructed automatically and bring to light the database of viral signatures. The analyst thus gains precious time in recognizing an attack. These tools also enable the automatic analysis of the functionalities of a program and the verification of its integrity.
