Definition

Generated software is

a style of computer programming that uses automated software creation — rather than being written by programmers — through generic frames, classes, prototypes, templates, aspects and code generators to improve programmer productivity.[1]

Overview

"Examples of this style of code generation include: plugins, device drivers, software extensions, program launchers and automatic software updates that can use a common legitimate framework. These elements can be modified for malicious intent, and purposely obscuring sources and code to make the program difficult to understand can further complicate detection."[2]
