This dataset consists of all the API calls gathered for the paper titled "Getting to the root of the problem: A detailed comparison of kernel and user level data for dynamic malware analysis". The Cuckoo data provided is the standard data the Cuckoo returns after each analysis, the main element used from the data returned was the API stats in report.json.

The kernel data is global system call data (all system calls made by all processes running on the system at the time). For each analysis a text file is created for every system call monitored. Everytime that call is used, a line is appended to the text file mentioning the time the call was made amongst a few other details (depending on the call).

Research results based upon these data are published at https://doi.org/10.1016/j.jisa.2019.102365
