I recently started learning Haskell, and have been reading about many of the advantages it is supposed to offer over traditional imperative programming. I came across this post about reverse-engineering compiled Haskell code, and it made me wonder about malware written in Haskell.
- Are there known instances of malware written in Haskell? (Quick Googling did not turn up any results for me.)
- Does the complex nature of compiled Haskell programs make it an attractive choice as a malware development language?
My assumption is that the barriers of entry to learning Haskell are too high for rudimentary malware, and that those with the time/ability to learn it are writing more complex malware that requires the low-level features of a language like C. Is this known to be the case?
