Short story about evading Antivirus Detection

Lately I came across an interesting paper where the authors use Reinforcement Learning (RL) to obfuscate malicious Portable Executable (PE) files to evade detection by antivirus (AV) scanners. The authors use actions as, for instance, random byte padding, packing the binary, adding benign strings to the .text section, modifying timestamps, adding function imports, etc… to obfuscate the binary file. After applying these actions, the modified PE file will be checked against an AV to see if the detection rate decreases. Read more
