Before you download an app (not just one written with a Python IDE) or run a file such as a CMD script, it is important to know that the file itself is secured and safe. We do not want any harmful viruses to ruin our computer or hack all our private information. To prevent this from happening, we often run virus scanners before running the file. It is also equally important to verify signatures, check for updates, and read security advisories before running a file. Detecting known software vulnerabilities is hard to do perfectly, but it’s easy to get partway there. In this video presented by Terri Oda from PyCon, we will learn how to use the Python Programming language to detect vulnerabilities in Binaries.
The video below will introduce us to the CVE Binary tool and how exactly it works. Interesting CVE Binary tool helps you determine if your system includes known vulnerabilities. Terri Oda will share a comprehensive demonstration on how exactly this CVE Binary tool works, how to use this tool more efficiently, and how it can effectively be used to detect security vulnerabilities. Feel free to watch the video below to learn more about how to use the Python programming language to detect vulnerabilities in Binaries.
You can download a powerful free Python IDE now and try out the examples shown in the video.
