abstract = {{In this paper, we introduce Malpedia, a collaboration platform for curating a malware corpus. It includes a baseline for a cleanly labeled malware corpus consisting of 607 families divided into 1792 samples. This corpus offers a plethora of possibilities for researchers, including using it as a testbed for evaluations on detection and analysis methods, quality assurance for classification, and contextualization of new malware. Based on our corpus, we show that looking beyond packers dramatically reduces the size needed for a corpus to be representative, as the number of distinct malware families and versions after unpacking is orders of magnitude smaller than the number of unique packed samples. Additionally, we perform a comprehensive study of the Windows malware in the corpus, scrutinizing its structural features.}},
