Security Architecture

A polymorphic worm uses code morphing techniques to obfuscate its decryption code while a metamorphic worm uses code morphing techniques to obfuscate the entire worm. Apart than the amount of code that must be morphed, why is it more difficult to develop a metamorphic worm than a polymorphic worm? Assume that in either case the worm must carry its own morphing engine.

A metamorphic worm that generates its own morphed copies is sometimes said to “carry its own metamorphic engine” (see Problem 25). In some situations it might be possible to instead use a standalone metamorphic generator (see Problem 24) to produce the metamorphic copies, in which case the worm would not need to carry its own metamorphic engine.
