We present CAMP, a content-agnostic malware protection system. CAMP works on top of Google’s Safe Browsing API and leverages reputation data to improve blacklist-based protection mechanisms. This paper gives a detailed overview of CAMP and provides an evaluation of an operational deployment serving 200 million browser users. Our evaluation shows that CAMP detects approximately 5 million malware downloads per month. We also show that CAMP exhibits accuracy close to 99%.
