We plan to develop a daemon to detect malware on local files.We will be covering the concept from file systems to machine learning models to detect if the file is malware. If time permits we will also make a Linux kernel module that will check for new files automatically.
Prerequisites: Basic C/C++/python

Tentative Timeline :

Week Work
Week 1 Study filesystems
Week 2 study ml models
Week 3-4 Start building filesystem based part of the malware detection system
Week 5-6 Start building model and integrate with filesystem
