This is the intention of Paul Barford, a computer scientist at the University of Wisconsin-Madison.

His system has a 99.9% detection rate of malicious signatures, roughly equivalent to some of the best commercial systems. But it has zero false positives when commercial systems have high numbers. This new system could soon be available commercially.
