How I met your mother? An empirical study about Android Malware Phylogenesis by Gerardo Canfora, Francesco Mercado, Antonio Pirozzi and Corrado Aaron Visaggio

New malware is often not really new: malware writers are used to add functionality to existing malware, or merge different pieces of existing malware code. This determines a proliferation of variants of the same malware, that are logically grouped in “malware families”. To be able to recognize the malware family a malware belongs to is useful for malware analysis, fast infection response, and quick incident resolution. In this paper we introduce DescentDroid, a tool that traces back the malware descendant family. We experiment our technique with a real world dataset of malicious applications labelled with the family they belong to, obtaining high precision in recognizing the malware family membership.
