Abstract

As a solution for malicicous web page attacks, we need a client-side prevention system with deobfuscation mechanism. In this paper we introduce WebVaccine, that is a client-side realtime prevention system against obfuscated malicious web pages. For secure web surfing, before the navigation to be completed, WebVaccine inserts a deobfuscation function call routine prior to the vulnerable script functions in malicious web pages, and makes the inserted function to extract the deobfuscated script string so that the string can be analyzed by a signature based detection subsystem or third party detection tools. We rest assured that the WebVaccine framework does not affect the execution of dynamic script interpretation while running web browsers and is likely to be of success.
