Is it really unethical to create such software? I would think the unethical part would be releasing it in to the wild.
Not being in IT security I am not up on the latest and greatest but what I got from the article was the NSA was testing current AV methodologies. The results look to me like current AV works against the current crop of virii being produced but obviously it is possible to create things that current AV doesn't recognize.
NSA is tasked with protecting '.gov/.mil' and appear to be trying to stay a step ahead. Of course, the black hats don't have to go down the same road that NSA did with their uber-virii but if AV can be improved to block one fork in the road before hand then it would seem to me to be a good thing.
