gef - GEF - GDB Enhanced Features for exploit devs & reversers

  •    Python

GEF is a kick-ass set of commands for X86, ARM, MIPS, PowerPC and SPARC to make GDB cool again for exploit dev. It is aimed to be used mostly by exploiters and reverse-engineers, to provide additional features to GDB using the Python API to assist during the process of dynamic analysis and exploit development. It has full support for both Python2 and Python3 indifferently (as more and more distros start pushing gdb compiled with Python3 support).

Malware - Course materials for Malware Analysis by RPISEC


This repository contains the materials as developed and used by RPISEC to teach Malware Analysis at Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute in Fall 2015. This was a university course developed and run soley by students, primarily using the Practical Malware Analysis book by Michael Sikorski and Andrew Honig, to teach skills in reverse engineering, malicious behaviour, malware, and anti-analysis techniques. The Practical Malware Analysis (PMA) book is where many RPISEC members and alumn started. The book reads very well, is full of information, and the lab walkthroughs in the back are invaluable. We didn't want to re-invent the wheel so we structured most of the class around the book. Students were expected to have read the relevant PMA book chapters before class, allowing us to spend much more class time demonstrating skills and techniques and walking through hands-on examples with the students.

bap - Binary Analysis Platform

  •    OCaml

The Carnegie Mellon University Binary Analysis Platform (CMU BAP) is a reverse engineering and program analysis platform that works with binary code and doesn't require the source code. BAP supports multiple architectures: ARM, x86, x86-64, PowerPC, and MIPS. BAP disassembles and lifts binary code into the RISC-like BAP Instruction Language (BIL). Program analysis is performed using the BIL representation and is architecture independent in a sense that it will work equally well for all supported architectures. The platform comes with a set of tools, libraries, and plugins. The documentation and tutorial are also available. The main purpose of BAP is to provide a toolkit for implementing automated program analysis. BAP is written in OCaml and it is the preferred language to write analysis, we have bindings to C, Python and Rust. The Primus Framework also provide a Lisp-like DSL for writing program analysis tools. BAP is developed in CMU, Cylab and is sponsored by various grants from the United States Department of Defense, Siemens AG, and the Korea government, see sponsors for more information.

wdbgark - WinDBG Anti-RootKit Extension

  •    C++

WDBGARK is an extension (dynamic library) for the Microsoft Debugging Tools for Windows. It main purpose is to view and analyze anomalies in Windows kernel using kernel debugger. It is possible to view various system callbacks, system tables, object types and so on. For more user-friendly view extension uses DML. For the most of commands kernel-mode connection is required. Feel free to use extension with live kernel-mode debugging or with kernel-mode crash dump analysis (some commands will not work). Public symbols are required, so use them, force to reload them, ignore checksum problems, prepare them before analysis and you'll be happy. Windows BETA/RC is supported by design, but read a few notes. First, i don't care about checked builds. Second, i don't care if you don't have symbols (public or private). IA64/ARM is unsupported (and will not).

simplify - Generic Android Deobfuscator

  •    Java

Simplify virtually executes an app to understand its behavior and then tries to optimize the code so that it behaves identically but is easier for a human to understand. Each optimization type is simple and generic, so it doesn't matter what the specific type of obfuscation is used. The code on the left is a decompilation of an obfuscated app, and the code on the right has been deobfuscated.

SWFREtools - SWF file reverse engineering tools

  •    Java

The SWFRETools are a collection of tools built for vulnerability analysis of the Adobe Flash player and for malware analysis of malicious SWF files. The tools are partly written in Java and partly in Python and are licensed under the GPL 2.0 license. Flash Dissector is a GUI tool that allows you to inspect SWF files on a binary level. When you open a SWF file in Flash Dissector you have the ability to look through the structures defined in the SWF file in a hex editor and in a structure viewer. This makes it easy to understand what bytes of a SWF file hold what functionality.

Yara - The pattern matching swiss knife for malware researchers

  •    C

YARA is a tool aimed at (but not limited to) helping malware researchers to identify and classify malware samples. With YARA you can create descriptions of malware families (or whatever you want to describe) based on textual or binary patterns. Each description, a.k.a rule, consists of a set of strings and a boolean expression which determine its logic.

barf-project - BARF : A multiplatform open source Binary Analysis and Reverse engineering Framework

  •    Python

The analysis of binary code is a crucial activity in many areas of the computer sciences and software engineering disciplines ranging from software security and program analysis to reverse engineering. Manual binary analysis is a difficult and time-consuming task and there are software tools that seek to automate or assist human analysts. However, most of these tools have several technical and commercial restrictions that limit access and use by a large portion of the academic and practitioner communities. BARF is an open source binary analysis framework that aims to support a wide range of binary code analysis tasks that are common in the information security discipline. It is a scriptable platform that supports instruction lifting from multiple architectures, binary translation to an intermediate representation, an extensible framework for code analysis plugins and interoperation with external tools such as debuggers, SMT solvers and instrumentation tools. The framework is designed primarily for human-assisted analysis but it can be fully automated. All packages were tested on Ubuntu 16.04 (x86_64).

theZoo - A repository of LIVE malwares for your own joy and pleasure

  •    Python

theZoo is a project created to make the possibility of malware analysis open and available to the public. Since we have found out that almost all versions of malware are very hard to come by in a way which will allow analysis, we have decided to gather all of them for you in an accessible and safe way. theZoo was born by Yuval tisf Nativ and is now maintained by Shahak Shalev. theZoo's purpose is to allow the study of malware and enable people who are interested in malware analysis (or maybe even as a part of their job) to have access to live malware, analyse the ways they operate, and maybe even enable advanced and savvy people to block specific malware within their own environment.

rvmi - rVMI - A New Paradigm For Full System Analysis

  •    C

rVMI is a debugger on steroids. It leverages Virtual Machine Introspection (VMI) and memory forensics to provide full system analysis. This means that an analyst can inspect userspace processes, kernel drivers, and pre-boot environments in a single tool. It was specifically designed for interactive dynamic malware analysis. rVMI isolates itself from the malware by placing its interactive debugging environment out of the virtual machine (VM) onto the hypervisor-level. Through the use of VMI the analyst still has full control of the VM, which allows her to pause the VM at any point in time and to use typical debugging features such as breakpoints and watchpoints. In addition, rVMI provides access to the entire Rekall feature set, which enables an analyst to inspect the kernel and its data structures with ease.
