Zozzle JavaScript Malware Detection Tool (Microsoft Research)

Microsoft Research has developed a new tool called “Zozzle,” a low-overhead solution for detecting and preventing JavaScript malware that can be deployed in the browser. Once installed, Zozzle will perform static analysis of JavaScript code on a website and determine whether the code has malware.

While the tool is currently in the research phase, the researchers say there is great possibility that it can also be used for standalone offline malware detection.

We embedded a technical report on “Zozzle” made by the Microsoft Research team which explains everything about the new JavaScript malware detection tool.
