Releasing Free Tool for Reverse Engineering Malware

By: Cristal M Clark 

The NSA generally undermines security rather than do anything useful so as to help.

Now the NSA is taking a stand against malware in a pretty significant way it would seem, they are going to release a helpful tool for free in an effort to help, for a change.

On March 5th, the agency plans to release a free reverse engineering tool, GHIDRA. The software reportedly dissects binaries for Android, iOS, macOS and Windows, turning them into assembly code that can help analyze malware or pinpoint questionable activity in otherwise innocent-looking software.

GHIDRA entered the spotlight with the Vault 7 leak, so it’s not a secret nor is it really new, it is unusual however, for the NSA to release it.

Other similar tools to exist in fact however they are terribly expensive.

This does leave some to wonder what the NSA’s true motives are given it’s prior history and part in the Zero Days worldwide malware release.
