Abstract [en]

Computer viruses uses a few different techniques, with various intentions, toinfect files. However, what most of them have in common is that they wantto avoid detection by anti-malware software. To not get detected and stay unnoticed,virus creators have developed several methods for this. Anti-malwaresoftware is constantly trying to counter these methods of virus infections withtheir own detection-techniques. In this paper we have analyzed the differenttypes of viruses and their infection techniques, and tried to determined whichworks the best to avoid detection. In the experiments we have done we havesimulated executing the viruses at the same time as an anti-malware softwarewas running. Our conclusion is that metamorphic viruses uses the best methodsto stay unnoticed by anti-malware software’s detection techniques.
