Interesting topic. Go has seen some uptake in malware development. I haven’t seen much mention of Rust yet, but I could see it happening for sure.
How would we know if Rust was being used in malware development, vs C++ or other LLVM-based languages?
(With Go, I’m aware of of it’s largish and distinctive runtime, for one.)
Good point - I’m not enough of a malware analyst to know! I’m assuming most would strip any symbols before deployment.
