Adversarial Machine Learning and its application to Malware — Héctor Menéndez


Malware is one of the most relevant problems in cybersecurity. The Internet spreads tons of malicious software, compromising several personal devices. Big data models, based on machine learning, can handle these big quantities of malicious information, but machine learning algorithms were not designed to deal with adversaries, and this issue is generating a big gap between confidence and efficiency that has not been filled yet. This talk aims to introduce vulnerabilities on current machine learning based solutions, and different scenarios where adversaries exploit them. It also aims to give some advice for strengthening machine learning models against adversaries, with the aim of helping to solve this open problem.
