    Exploit Development and Reverse Engineering with GDB Made Easy

    Project mention: Hacked GDB Dashboard Puts It All on Display | | 2022-03-24

    There are a lot of these types of tools already in the reverse engineering community (in order of lowest chance of breaking when you throw really weird stuff at it):




    They also come with a slew of different features to aid in RE/exploit dev, but many of them are also useful for debugging really weird issues.

  • SonarQube

    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.

  • pyinstxtractor

    PyInstaller Extractor

    Project mention: Synack Red Team Five CTF Writeup - Rev | | 2022-05-05

    It's a Pyinstaller binary.(I have used it once before, so I just knew it by checking the file.) Use to extract its source code archive in binary (by just running python ./backdoor or something), now many .pyc files are extracted. Find src.pyc and it's malformed as Python3.9, so denies to decompile. But challenge information says it's Python3.8, so I write helloworld python script and execute it with Python3.8. It yields Python3.8 .pyc file. Analyze it and find signature is \x55. Change src.pyc's signature from \x61 to \x55 and decompile by running uncompyle6 backdoor-src.38.pyc >

  • tenet

    A Trace Explorer for Reverse Engineers

    Project mention: I'm looking for a program-flow highlighting tool. Any ideas? | | 2022-02-08

    Tenet: use a specific trace output (see tracers) and import the trace into IDA, which then gets a colorized view. You can also play the trace forward and backward à la Windbg TTD.
