Dr. Jose Nazario (Senior Software Engineer, Arbor Networks)

Filed under: Main Page — Administrator @ 2:46 pm

Presentation Title: Googling for Malware and Bugs
Presentation Details:

Googles tremendous database has facilitated a number of queries that before we could only dream of. The back end analysis tools, exposed through search facilities and operators, solves a number of technical hurdles and leaves only your imagination as a limiting factor. While other talks have focused on finding out about people and hidden secrets using Google, this talk will focus instead on using Google Codesearch to perform large scale static code analysis to find security-related bugs, and also on how to use the standard Google search facility to find malware and suspicious executables. Well explore what this means, discuss tools to facilitate this approach, and show you how to go forth and discover the Internets underbelly.
