Security specialists have been developing and implementing many countermeasures against security threats, which is needed because the number of new security threats is further and further growing. In this chapter, we introduce an approach for identifying hidden security threats by using Uniform Resource Locators (URLs) as an example dataset, with a method that automatically detects malicious URLs by leveraging machine learning techniques. We demonstrate the effectiveness of the method through performance evaluations.
