Project Title

Domain graph malware analisys.

Project Description

The project attempts to analyze the domain introduced by the user in order to create a graph with its sites and links. The purpose is searching malware in the domain and its related sites.

  1. Crawler.R: The domain is read and analyzed to search for links and new domains. Afterwards, links are cleaned and formated so as to analyse the information

  2. ExpositionCrawlingData.R: Graph and summaries about collected data are generated, e.g common external domains, ...

  3. MalwareData.R: Malware domain information is downloaded from several sources.

  4. AnalyzeDomains.R: Links, which where extracted from the Crawler, are analyzed and compared with the malware information collected.

  5. ExpositionMalwareData.R: Graphs are generated to show malware information about the domain analyzed.


The goal of the project is detect whether it is possible to reach a domain with malware or spam from a given domain.

Data acquisition

Malware information can be found on the following sources:

Data analysis

We can found a complete domain analysis on the domain under vignettes. However, a complete inform about other domains can be created changing the url parameter.

Results / Conclusions.

After performing different analysis, we found it is very easy to reach a potentially dangerous domain from any kind of domain. Nevertheless, the most difficult task is getting a valid source of malware domain, with the current sources there are many false positives. Consequently, it is needed to add a whitelist of domains to have more acurate results.

You can’t perform that action at this time.
