Abstract

Because malicious code gradually endangers people's life and verifying the harmlessness of a file usually costs many resources, the MapReduce System for Online File Scanning (MRSOFS) is proposed as a solution for combing the online file scanning service and a MapReduce system on cloud computing. In this paper, MRSOFS is introduced, implemented, and evaluated with experiments. In experiments, MRSOFS outperforms the standard case of using a single computer to scan a file for a specific signature in a signature database. MRSOFS is proved to get performance benefits by using a MapReduce system to scan a file for a specific signature, and can be utilized by an online file scanning service against malicious code.
