Flexible Android Malware Detection Model based on Generative Adversarial Networks with Code Tensor. (arXiv:2210.14225v1 [cs.CR])

The behavior of malware threats is gradually increasing, heightened the need
for malware detection. However, existing malware detection methods only target
at the existing malicious samples, the detection of fresh malicious code and
variants of malicious code is limited. In this paper, we propose a novel scheme
that detects malware and its variants efficiently. Based on the idea of the
generative adversarial networks (GANs), we obtain the `true’ sample
distribution that satisfies the characteristics of the real malware, use them
to deceive the discriminator, thus achieve the defense against malicious code
attacks and improve malware detection. Firstly, a new Android malware APK to
image texture feature extraction segmentation method is proposed, which is
called segment self-growing texture segmentation algorithm. Secondly, tensor
singular value decomposition (tSVD) based on the low-tubal rank transforms
malicious features with different sizes into a fixed third-order tensor
uniformly, which is entered into the neural network for training and learning.
Finally, a flexible Android malware detection model based on GANs with code
tensor (MTFD-GANs) is proposed. Experiments show that the proposed model can
generally surpass the traditional malware detection model, with a maximum
improvement efficiency of 41.6%. At the same time, the newly generated samples
of the GANs generator greatly enrich the sample diversity. And retraining
malware detector can effectively improve the detection efficiency and
robustness of traditional models.
