Security researcher H.D. Moore has released a new malware search engine and its underlying code to help searchers find malware code that Google has indexed.
But Google isn't exactly happy about it.
Moore who co-authored the Metasploit Framework, a platform for testing and developing exploit code, also launched his Month of Browser Bugs (MoBB) project, which is disclosing a new browser vulnerability every day this month.
In addition to publicly posting the new malware search engine, Moore has posted the source code behind the engine in three segments: the Malware Signature Generator; the Malware Google API Signature Search; and the Malware Downloader.
All three have been released under the open source GPL license and have been written in Ruby.
