Dr. Gadget IDAPython plugin
Author: dennis # Views: 17964

Hi,

I wanted to share with you this little IDAPython plugin which helps in writing and analyzing return oriented payload. It uses IDA's custom viewers in order to display an array of DWORDs called 'items', where an item can be either a pointer to a gadget or a simple 'value'.
There are several keyboard shortcuts to access functionality that otherwise also is accessible via the context menu:

ESC   - closes the plugin
ENTER - jumps to item address in disassembly
O     - toggles item type (offset, value)
D     - deletes an item
I     - inserts an item
E     - edits an item's value

Functionality that is accessible via context menu only:

Load payload     - loads a payload from disk
Save payload     - saves a payload to disk

Auto analysis I  - tries to determine each item's type (offset, value)
Reset            - resets each item's type
Show disassembly - opens a disassembly subwindow


Below screenshots show the plugin's interface. The IDB is a disassembly
of 'BIB.dll' (MD5: 2ec16a4cdb828a31a432513a82cbafdf). _rop.bin is some
exploit's payload in binary form (more info:
http://blog.zynamics.com/2010/06/09/analyzing-the-currently-exploited-0-day-for-adobe-reader-and-adobe-flash/)









The plugin can be used either on a static disassembly or during an IDA debugging session.

The plugin is available here: http://www.openrce.org/repositories/users/dennis/drgadget.py
_rop.bin is available here: http://www.openrce.org/repositories/users/dennis/rop.bin

edit:
just uploaded v0.2 which adds Elias Bachaalany's "find instruction/opcode" script from
