Understanding security attacks and protecting against them is a critical part of practically all systems nowadays. In this talk I will briefly present the main approaches of most anti-malware software, and present a specific, unusual attack often called “trusting trust attack”. “Trusting trust” is based on a fun programming challenge, but with a little trick it becomes a sneaky way to insert backdoors into programs.
