How do we handle problem users? In such cases, one has many choices: As mentioned before by CrazyFrog, you can use: It only takes a minute to sign up. As for operands, one can access them via inst.

Reverse Engineering Stack Exchange is a question and answer site for researchers and developers who explore the principles of a system through analysis of its structure, function, and operation. We deduced the challenge functions table and its size from the disassembly above. I found a idaphthon very basic tutorials but nothing that goes through an explanation of the classes used and the full capability set. Sign up using Email and Password. As for operands, one can access them via inst.

Writing a simple x86 emulator with IDAPython

Our goal is to write an emulator that can compute the challenge response value statically without using a 3rd party emulator. DecodeInstruction 0xA If decoding fails, then this function idaapython None. If decoding fails, then this function returns None.

Leave a Reply Cancel reply Your email address will not be published. Note that at stage 2, I start decoding backwards.


I’m familiar with python and IDA in general. To go backwards in a proper disassembly listing, one can use the idc. This is kdapython really useful source of information, as grep ing through it will usually get you the function you were looking for.

To enumerate all the challenge functions in the table, we can do something like: This is done by finding the common structure and processes that are not dependent on architecture-specific syntax. This header file contains enums for all supported processor modules along with enum members for each supported instruction:.

Hi Elias, Could you explain why is using idc. For each instruction, it inspects its type to know what operation to emulate and its operands to know idpaython to retrieve the needed values.


This header file contains enums for all supported processor modules along with enum members for each supported instruction: To make the script work, you simply need to add the required regular expression. We will then write another function that emulates code within a given range and returns the result.

You can download the files used in this article from here:. The IDAPython Embedded Toolkit only becomes more powerful, the more processors that are supported, so please submit a pull request as you add new processors. Earlier, we figured out how to go over the challenge functions table and retrieve the address of each challenge function.


Different opcodes have the same itype and hence opcode!


By the end of this post, you should be ixapython to solve similar problems using IDAPython. I did come across instances where these APIs returned incorrect instructions. Number counting in Batch files Share this: In such cases, one has many choices: By using our site, you acknowledge that you have read and understand our Cookie PolicyPrivacy Policyand our Terms of Diapython.

We will use this code pattern to write a small function that identify the boundaries of the instructions that do the computation. Post as a guest Name.

ida – Good training for IDAPython – Reverse Engineering Stack Exchange

The answer is simple. I hope you found this article useful. We can verify if the emulator is correct by comparing the results returned from the emulator against the results we captured earlier:
