This project creates Transcriptase–Light, a new polymorphic construction kit. We perform an experiment with the Transcriptase–Light against a hidden Markov model. Our experiment shows that the HMM based detector failed in detecting Transcriptase–Light. After observing the results, we try to detect malware using the decryption part of Transcriptase–Light. To avoid detection, we generate the polymorphic version of the decryption part.
