Automated techniques to classify malware samples into their respective families are critical in cybersecurity. Previously research applied ��-means clustering to scores generated by hidden Markov models (HMM) as a means of dealing with the malware classification problem. In this research, we follow a somewhat similar approach, but instead of using HMMs to generate scores, we directly cluster the HMMs themselves. We obtain good results on a challenging malware dataset.
