We propose a classification model with various machine learning algorithms to adequately recognise malware files and clean (not malware-affected) files with an objective to minimise the number of false positives. Malware anomaly detection systems are the system security component that monitors network and framework activities for malicious movements. It is becoming an essential component to keep data framework protected with high reliability. The objective of malware inconsistency recognition is to demonstrate common applications perceiving attacks through failure impacts. In this paper, we present machine learning strategies for malware location to distinguish normal and harmful activities on the system. This malware data analytics process carried out using the WEKA tool on the figshare dataset using the four most successful algorithms on the preprocessed dataset through cross-validation. Garrett’s Ranking Strategy has been used to rank various classifiers on their performance level. The results suggest that Instance-Based Learner (IBK) classification approach is the most successful.
