Towards a worm creation language

Immunity's Dave Aitel has posted slides from his recent talk, entitled Advanced Ordnance. The presentation explores the idea of creating a description language and compiler for implementing the next generation of platform-independent worms. Lest you think this is just pie-in-the-sky, I should mention that it's based on his freeware MOSDEF tool, so parts of what he describes already exist, or are withing cat-hurling distance of existing. It's interesting stuff, though the implications are a little on the scary side.

(Note: The presentation is in an OpenOffice format)
