Reverse Engineering With Radare2 ? Intro

###Introductionradare2 is an opensource reverse engineering framework. Other reverse engineering tools include IDA and Hopper.These are extremely expensive and r2 aims at being the ultimate reverse engineering tool in the future and replace these.

Reverse Engineering With Radare2 – Intro


Radare2 is an open-source, command-line based reverse engineering framework for Linux, macOS, Windows and many other platforms. It includes a set of tools for reverse engineering and analysing executable files (compiled programs). Radare2 can be used to perform both static and dynamic analysis.

The Juptyer notebook is a server-based notebook application that supports both rich text and computer code. It allows you write and run Python directly in your notebook documents, which could be useful for many reverse engineering tasks.

Possibly the best way to learn reverse engeering is to solve crackme challenges. Crackme challenges, or simply 'crackmes', are binaries that have been created for the purposes of training and testing your reverse engineering skills.

The most well-known type of crackme is a password crackme, which is a binary that prompts you for a password when run. In order to solve the crackme, you have to use various reverse engineering tools in order to determine what the password is.

Other types of crackmes include encryption programs where you have to reverse engineer an encryption key or algorithm, as well as programs with outright undefined behaviour, where you have to determine what the program does in order to solve the challenge.

Within the output, you will see the classes, methods and even instance variables for the iOS application. This information is a great way to start reverse engineering an application with a better understanding of the application and places to search.

Disassemblers can be used to analyze and understand the code of compiled binaries. In the context of iOS reverse engineering, disassemblers are often used to examine the inner workings of iOS applications, know how they function and search for potential vulnerabilities within.

Overall, disassemblers are an essential tool in the arsenal of any iOS reverse engineer, no matter which disassembler you choose. For this blog post, we will show some examples within Hopper, but by no means is that the only disassembler you can use to perform these actions and analyses.

Reverse engineering is a complex topic with a large variety of tools, applications and analysis that needs to be completed. The goal of this blog post was to give you a quick overview of some of the tools that can be utilized, how they can be used and to start looking deeper into disassemblers.

.NET binaries are normally easier to reverse engineer than compiled binaries. Just like with Java .jars, they can be decompiled to reveal the underlying source code; however, writing deobfuscators for these binaries is not usually straightforward for newer analysts. This post will walk through writing a string deobfuscator for the Blackguard Infostealer.

Many malware samples use encryption for Command and Control (C2) communications, encrypting files, string obfuscation, and many other tasks. It can be challenging to know which encryption algorithm you are looking at when analyzing a sample. This post aims to teach newer analysts about common encryption algorithms, how they work, and how you can identify them when reverse engineering.

I recently reversed another Excel document with 4.0 Macros that was similar to my previous post on the subject but had some added anti-analysis features that I wanted to share. I recommend reading the previous post to learn more as this article will not be going step-by-step through the analysis process. If you would like to follow along you can find the sample here.

This first blog entry will go through the tools you will need to reverse engineer iOS applications. Since this is not the first time this topic has been covered, and there are countelessblog posts about how to do this with Mac OS, I will show you how to do reverse engineering without the need for Mac OS.

A security researcher's diary: a place to find contents regarding reverse engineering, security research, exploit development, Windows Linux, Android, Mac OS, iOS, x86/x64, arm32/arm64, mips and much more.

In this course we will learn about the Radare2 reverse engineering framework. It is an open source free alternative to IDA Pro. I started to work with it because I think nobody will buy IDA Pro unless it is paid by your employer. Radare2 is a perfect free alternative, its only disadvantage is that it could be hard to start using it. This is where this course comes in. My goal was to get you over the hard part as fast as possible. So that you can get comfortable with Radare2.

This file format was in use between the 80s and 90s. In order to perform some operations on Paradox databases, nowadays, there are libraries based on the file format reverse engineering work by individual open source programmers, or ad hoc commercial programs.

Some features of the Go programming language give reverse engineers a hard time when investigating Go binaries. Reverse engineering tools (e.g. disassemblers) can do a great job analyzing binaries that are written in more popular languages (e.g. C, C++, .NET), but Go creates new challenges that make the analysis more cumbersome.

Ghidra is an open source reverse engineering tool developed by the National Security Agency, which we frequently use for static malware analysis. It is possible to create custom scripts and plugins for Ghidra to provide specific functionalities that researchers need. We used this feature of Ghidra and created custom scripts to aid our Go binary analysis.

The first issue is not specific to Go binaries, but stripped binaries in general. Compiled executable files can contain debug symbols which make debugging and analysis easier. When analysts reverse engineer a program that was compiled with debugging information, they can see not only memory addresses, but also the names of the routines and variables. However, malware authors usually compile files without this information, creating so-called stripped binaries. They do this to reduce the size of the file and make reverse engineering more difficult. When working with stripped binaries, analysts cannot rely on the function names to help them find their way around the code. With statically linked Go binaries, where all the necessary libraries are included, the analysis can slow down significantly.

This example clearly shows how much help the function name recovery script can be during reverse engineering. Analysts can assume that they are dealing with ransomware just by looking at the function names.

As you can see, a script can recover dynamically allocated string structures. This helps reverse engineers read the assembly code or look for interesting strings within the Defined String view in Ghidra.

This article focused on the solutions for two issues within Go binaries to help reverse engineers use Ghidra and statically analyze malware written in Go. We discussed how to recover function names in stripped Go binaries and proposed several solutions for defining strings within Ghidra. The scripts that we created and the files we used for the examples in this article are publicly available, and the links can be found below.

This is just the tip of the iceberg when it comes to the possibilities for Go reverse engineering. As a next step, we are planning to dive deeper into Go function call conventions and the type system.

The creative process of studying software and comprehending it without having access to the source code is known as reverse engineering. It is the process of deconstructing software in such a way that its core features, such as structure, function, and operation, are revealed.

One of the most important talents in the software security business is reverse engineering. The majority of assaults, which are generally carried out via malicious software, should be reversed and examined. The primary requirements after a malware attack within a system are to clean the system and nodes and keep them from being hacked.

A software analyst's job is to figure out how harmful software got into the system and design removal procedures. In malware analysis, reverse-engineering is done to figure out what a piece of code is doing and develop a detection procedure to keep it from infecting the system again.

Radare2 is an open source reverse engineering framework that supports many platforms, architectures, and binary formats for static and dynamic analysis, digital forensics, and software exploitation. Radare2 comes with a number of additional useful utilities, including file metadata extraction, base conversion, unified binary diffing, and more.This tool is both a wonderful disassembler and a decent debugger, which is very useful if you like dealing with CLI (command-line interface). It is difficult to master radare2 since it requires the memorising of a large number of instructions. However, as compared to creating code using the IDA bindings, it offers a more straightforward command-line interface.

This section explains how to reverse a binary executable. When a user is asked to provide a secret password for logging in to a system, this standard software compares the input password to a static string and produces a message for each correct and incorrect code. The purpose of this demonstration is to show how radare2 works.

We may alter the view with the command p and the down arrow key until we come to the address range 0x00401563 to 0x004015bb, as the results from the hex editor are not what we need to see. We may see crucial information, such as the password radare2, in this address range, which is never exposed to the user during the execution of the application.

Finally, because r2 is free, multi-platform and runs on pretty much anything at all that can run a terminal emulator, learning how to reverse with r2 is a transferable skill you can take advantage of anywhere.
