    GEF (GDB Enhanced Features) - a modern experience for GDB with advanced debugging features for exploit developers & reverse engineers

    Project mention: Debugging with GDB | | 2022-03-21

    I still struggle with GDB but my excuse is that I seldom use it.

    When I was studying reverse engineering though, I came across a really cool kit (which I've yet to find an alternative for lldb, which would be nice given: rust)

    I'd recommend checking it out, if for no other reason than it makes a lot of things really obvious (like watching what value lives in which register).

    LLDB's closest alternative to this is called Venom, but it's not the same at all.

  • nuclei-templates

  • OSCE

    Collection of things made during my preparation to take on OSCE (by ihack4falafel)

    Project mention: security researcher assistant | | 2021-11-19

    exploit dev usually has its roots in software development and debugging. and essentially your "exploit" is also running inside another process, so if you mess up any existing memory or register, you are going to kill yourself if the process segfault. anyway, there are many resources: a. Protostar: and many youtubes video associated with these. b. c. d. e. f.

  • Simos18_SBOOT

    Documentation and tools about Simos18 SBOOT (Supplier Bootloader), including a Seed/Key bypass and Tricore boot password recovery tool.

    Project mention: Hacking a VW Golf Power Steering ECU | | 2022-01-04

    My writeups and JG Lim's cover three of the common mistakes in modern modules (supplier backdoor bugs in Simos supplier bootloader, state machine issues in Simos VW bootloader, and block buffer validity confusion / bounds check issues in Mercedes instrument cluster).
