Hello and happy new year to all!

I have took over a thesis for my University on "Network and Computer Security".
I would like to guide me on what can i study in the research part of this thesis.
I want to focus on antivirus more, as i am an amateur virus collector and tester of antivirus software.
But what research can i make for education purposes? Something innovated...
May some tests with a security analyzer in the labs of the University?
I am thinking about cloud protection. If i could prove the contribution of cloud technique in detection rate of antivirus suites with experiments and stats. But it is not very easy...

Sure the best would be to contribute in the security of computer. Maybe with improving the detection rate of antivirus software, but it is very difficult for me.

I wait your ideas. :busy:

Thanks a lot!

Research HTML5 malware. It is expected that this type of malware will emerge when HTML5 gets a larger adoption.
