CPE: McAfee AudioParasitic: Episode 9: teaching Malware authoring part 2/2

length: 00:25:50

Continue discussion about ethic of teaching malware writing with Karthik Raman and Craig Schmugar, part 2/2

You can do a lot of research using all available information in Interne without writing your own malware…
The design of the course should not encourage the student to write their own malware..
But what they are trying to do? I don’t think there is anything new that can be taught

When they decide to teach people to write malware, I don’t think they know what they are doing…

Would/ Could  the University be  held liable if the virus cause damage???

It comes down to: intent and technique…

Would you take course on malware writing?? Dave said yes J

I don’t think this course will help writing malware.

It is not suitable for high school level – should be master level.

Fitch said one time: we always get road map from malware writer…

We did not come into any conclusion – as always with the rest of the podcast…

Benefit of malware writing course does not outweight the  negatives – but if this changed I agree..
Hopefully this will mold people to more ethical approach.

Code is code, can be used for good intention or bad intention.
No valid point to tech malware writing..
