Could you suggest something that you have in mind regarding detecting malicious code? What I understood is that static analysis might help in some aspects of code like 'resources leaks', 'concurrency issues', etc. and this is what is being called as 'malicious code' in the project.  
Yeah, that's fine for a start. We might also want to blacklist certain api's from C++ I guess. But just searching for those and filtering is probably fine. It's supposed to be helpful for reviewers, not trying to replace them for now. 
Can we include https://github.com/xbmc/xbmc/issues/17514 into the project. Because it seems that given python add-on checker is already in place and additional work required to do essentially same work for binary add-ons shouldn't take too long. And this will definitely improve ecosystem of binary add-ons.
If you have any other relevant issue in mind, can you please reply here?
