Gee, I hope it works. It's an interesting idea, to look at all the attributes that make up a threat profile in addition to the actual code. But I wonder how long it will be before the schmucks out there learn to develop patternless worms. Oh that's right, for the most part they already have. That's the Catch-22 of this fight against malware—there is never any pattern and there is always a pattern, once one is discovered, that is.I couldn't help but think of Frank Herbert's Dune series of sci-fi novels in which the planet's native people, the Fremen (pronounced Free-men) learned to traverse the vast expanses of sand walking without any set rhythms and patterns so the giant worms couldn't detect their movements and devour them. Oh, come on, I know you read Dune.
What a reversal we have here. It's the worms that will evolve patternless behavior and us Free-men will never be free until we can detect the patterns.
