What is winappdbg?
The winappdbg python module allows developers to quickly code
instrumentation scripts in Python under a Windows environment.
It uses ctypes to wrap many Win32 API calls related to debugging, and
provides an object-oriented abstraction layer to manipulate threads,
libraries and processes, attach your script as a debugger, trace
execution, hook API calls, handle events in your debugee and set
breakpoints of different kinds (code, hardware and memory).
Additionally it has no native code at all, making it easier to
maintain or modify than other debuggers on Windows.
The intended audience are QA engineers and software security auditors
wishing to test / fuzz Windows applications with quickly coded Python
scripts. Several ready to use utilities are shipped and can be used
for this purposes.
Current features also include disassembling x86 native code (using the
open source diStorm project, see http://ragestorm.net/distorm/),
debugging multiple processes simultaneously and produce a detailed log
of application crashes, useful for fuzzing and automated testing.
Where can I find winappdbg?
