Microsoft Research Announces Zozzle JavaScript Malware Detection Tool

. December 4, 2010 . 0 Comments

Microsoft Research has developed a new browser tool called Zozzle that can detect JavaScript-based malware.

Microsoft Research said:
“JavaScript malware-based attacks now account for a large fraction of successful mass-scale exploitation happening today. From the standpoint of the attacker, the attraction is that these drive-by attacks that can be mounted against an unsuspecting user visiting a seemingly innocent web page. While several techniques for addressing these types of exploits have been proposed, in-browser adoption has been slow, in part because of the performance overhead these methods tend to incur.”

There are no current plans to release Zozzle to the public.

Microsoft Research’s motto is “Turning Ideas Into Reality”
