Cloud Computing Based Detection and response mechanism to combat malware infecting web browsers on smartphones
Recently, the smartphone industry has seen tremendous growth due to the widespread adoption of devices based on Google’s Android and Apple’s IOS platforms. The worldwide market penetration of Android based smartphone has attracted attention of malware developers. This research project presents a lightweight real-time classifier of URLs generated by smartphone web browsers to determine if the associated websites are malicious. The classifier is implemented on Hadoop based cloud computing platform to ensure real-time response. Performance evaluation of the system has shown that 85-90% accuracy is achieved with a response time of 140 ms.
