Paper: Stripping Down an AV Engine
While reading through some papers, I found a particularly good one. While the methods are not ground breaking, and the paper is somewhat old (circa 2000) it does outline some of the good methods for detecting a viruses. These methods are still being rehashed today. Stripping Down an AV Engine by Igor Muttik is a good read. Check it out.
