CFET paper added to White Papers Page

We’ve just added my paper "The Game of the Name: Malware Naming, Shape Shifters and Sympathetic Magic" to the White Papers page at

This paper follows up on "A Dose By Any Other Name", which Pierre-Marc and I presented at Virus Bulletin last year and goes some way towards explaining (I hope…) why sample glut and proactive detection have sounded the death knell of the "one detection per variant" model.

The paper was presented at the 3rd Cybercrime Forensics Education & Training (CFET 2009) Conference in Canterbury, UK, earlier in September 2009.
