    Fascinating. This works with any sort of software, not merely viruses, correct? Also, fun fact: you can't access the actual Ghidra's website from a Russian IP. All other, VPN options work, even if...

    Also, fun fact: you can't access the actual Ghidra's website from a Russian IP. All other, VPN options work, even if some of them take a while. My IP? "Access denied".

      Yes it's for lots of different software. Even works on APKs. The geo-block is for legal reasons. There's laws restricting export of certain software.

        Seems ridiculous, considering (A) they're already releasing it publicly, (B) it's going open-source some time this March. Is there a way not to export open-source software?

          If it makes you feel better, I'd bet the same thing would occur for any Iranian, Cubans or Iranian Tilders as well, export controls being what they are
