Science Daily takes
at a program called Korset, that fights malware.
"Prof. Wool and Ben-Cohen have built an open-source software solution
for servers that run on Linux. "We modified the kernel in the system's
operating system so that it monitors and tracks the behavior of the
programs installed on it," says Prof. Wool. Essentially, he says, they have
built a model that predicts how software running on a server should
work. If the kernel senses abnormal activity, it stops the program from
working before malicious actions occur. "When we see a deviation, we know
for sure there's something bad going on," Prof. Wool explains.
