Moreover, the intensive use of networks and Internet increases the ability of the spreading and the effectiveness of this kind of software. On the other hand, researchers and manufacturers making great efforts to produce anti-malware systems with effective detection methods for better protection on computers. In this paper, a detailed review has been conducted on the current situation of malware infection and the work done to improve anti-malware or malware detection systems.
