Dynamic Analysis

Dynamic Analysis

The identification of malware that is based on direct observation of its behaviour. Using this method to identify malicious payloads is still not perfect, however, as the malware may be programmed to behave differently under the absence or presence of certain resources, or when it is being observed. See also Sandbox.
