Issue Date:  2012
Abstract:  Malicious PDF files have been used to harm computer security during the past two-three years, and modern antivirus are proving to be not completely effective against this kind of threat. In this paper an innovative technique, which combines a feature extractor module strongly related to the structure of PDF files and an effective classifier, is presented. This system has proven to be more effective than other state-of-the-art research tools for malicious PDF detection, as well as than most of antivirus in commerce. Moreover, its flexibility allows adopting it either as a stand-alone tool or as plug-in to improve the performance of an already installed antivirus.
