    Phew. Alphabet soup. Not sure I see any application here. What SBIE doesn't cover VM does.

    @Peter2150 check out the GitHub summary. This is server-side software, not aimed at end users.

    https://github.com/F-Secure/see

    So, a framework for automated reverse engineering. I'm guessing the idea is to automate malware analysis, though it could probably be adapted to other uses.

    Edit: actually, you know what this might be handy for, is finding vulnerabilities in proprietary applications before they get released to market. Which would be a very good thing. From the bit about "dangerous or unstable" though I'm guessing malware analysis is the main target.

    (Mind, I'd be interested in hearing from the horse's mouth. Do we have any F-Secure developers hanging around here? :) )

    Hi Gullible Jones

    I agree with you. Just a lot of word smithing.
