HP releasing new Flash security tool soon
People talk about all kinds of things at a Black Hat event, sometimes even unreleased commercial products. Nearly a month ago, I was in a session at Black Hat DC where HP security researcher Prajakta Jagdale talked about the security risks associated with Flash. Buried in that presentation was the discussion of a tool called SWFscan -- a new under development tool from HP that decompiles flash code and looks for vulnerabilities.
InternetNews.com has now learned that HP plans to officially announce a Flash security tool on March 23.
In her Black Hat presentation, Jagdale gave an overview of SWFscan that showed some interesting capabilities.
