  abstract =     "Malware is any software aiming to disrupt computer
                 operation. Malware is also used to gather sensitive
                 information or gain access to private computer systems.
                 This is widely seen as one of the major threats to
                 computer systems nowadays. Traditionally, anti-malware
                 software is based on a signature detection system which
                 keeps updating from the Internet malware database and
                 thus keeping track of known malwares. While this method
                 may be very accurate to detect previously known
                 malwares, it is unable to detect unknown malicious
                 codes. Recently, several machine learning methods have
                 been used for malware detection, achieving remarkable
                 success. In this paper, we propose a method in this
                 strand by using Genetic Programming for detecting
                 malwares. The experiments were conducted with the
                 malwares collected from an updated malware database on
                 the Internet and the results show that Genetic
                 Programming, compared to some other well-known machine
                 learning methods, can produce the best results on both
                 balanced and imbalanced datasets.",
