Defining Sandbox Evasion

Malware can behave differently when it senses AV software like sandboxes to evade detection. For example, by modifying its behaviour on detecting interaction with an Antivirus-registered IP, to which it will send benign content, avoiding detection as malware. Other techniques include fake CAPTCHAS and stalling. Having fooled the AV scanner, the malware will then send malicious content to the user. Cloaking can be classified as client-side or server-side.
