Together with the massive expansion of smartphones, tablets, and other smart devices, the authors can notice a growing number of malware threats targeting these platforms. Software security companies are not prepared for such diversity of target platforms and there are only few techniques for platform-independent malware analysis. This is a major security issue these days. In this paper, they propose a concept of a retargetable reverse compiler (i.e., a decompiler), which is in an early stage of development.
