The M/o/Vfuscator: Turning 'mov' into a soul-crushing RE nightmare

Presented at REcon 2015, June 20, 2015, 4 p.m. (60 minutes)

Based on a paper that proves that the "mov" instruction is Turing complete, the M/o/Vfuscator takes source code and compiles it into a program that uses *only* mov instructions - no comparisons, no jumps, no math (and definitely no SMC cheating) - turning the program into one of the most painfully difficult reverse engineering targets you will ever encounter.
