New Topic of Interest: Predicting Malware
Introduction: Cohen with his virus paper predicted new malware. The viruses that follwed and the anti-virus software showed its importance. Although in the 1980s scientists and also the makers of WarGames predicted attacks against critical infrastructures, it took until the deployment of the Stuxnet worm before it was taken seriously. Banks wait to deploy security mechanisms against attack vectors until the harm done by hackers make them economically justifiable, showing the importance of predicting when this threshold will be reached.
Type of papers: Papers using any economic, computer science, engineering, and/or scientific methods to predict new types, impacts, vulnerabilities, etc., of future malware are welcome.
Program Committee: Please see the program committee page.
