We study techniques to visualize the behavior of malicious software (malware). Our aim is to help human analysts to quickly assess and classify the nature of a new malware sample. Our techniques are based on a parametrized abstraction of detailed behavioral reports automatically generated by sandbox environments. We then explore two visualization techniques: treemaps and thread graphs. We argue that both techniques can effectively support a human analyst (a) in detecting maliciousness of software, and (b) in classifying malicious behavior.
