On the 62nd episode of The Silver Bullet Security Podcast, Gary chats with Halvar Flake (a.k.a. Thomas Dullien), founder of reverse engineering consultancy, Zynamics, which was recently purchased by Google. Gary and Halvar discuss the acquisition, Zynamics’ product BinDiff, whether the “bad guys” are using code understanding tools (including decompilers) better than developers, static versus dynamic analysis, international politics meets computer security, and the growing complexity of malware.
