Abstract 

This dataset is part of our research on malware detection and classification using Deep Learning. It contains 42,797 malware API call sequences and 1,079 goodware API call sequences. Each API call sequence is composed of the first 100 non-repeated consecutive API calls associated with the parent process, extracted from the 'calls' elements of Cuckoo Sandbox reports.
