Virus Bulletin - Browser Malware Taxonomy

In this paper, we propose a taxonomy of browser malware.We classify browser add-ons, emphasizing their privileges. Since privileges impact the capability of malware, we use the resulting classification as a basis for our taxonomy. We hope that this taxonomy will provide better insight into the techniques and tactics used by browser malware, and assist in the development of defences.
