  abstract =     "The analogies between computer malware and biological
                 viruses are more than obvious. The very idea of an
                 artificial ecosystem where malicious software can
                 evolve and autonomously find new, more effective ways
                 of attacking legitimate programs and damaging sensitive
                 information is both terrifying and fascinating. The
                 paper proposes two different ways for exploiting an
                 evolutionary algorithm to devise malware: the former
                 targeting heuristic-based anti-virus scanner; the
                 latter optimising a Trojan attack. Testing the
                 stability of a system against attacks, or checking the
                 reliability of the heuristic scan of anti-virus
                 software could be interesting for the research
                 community and advantageous to the IT industry.
                 Experimental results shows the feasibility of the
                 proposed approaches on simple real-world test cases.",
