Why this tool?

PyREBox is short for Python scriptable Reverse Engineering Sandbox. It provides dynamic analysis and debugging capabilities of a running QEMU virtual machine. The primary usage is the analysis of running processes to perform reverse engineering. PyREBox can change parts of the running system by changing data in memory or within processor registers.

How it works

The analysis within the virtual machine can be influenced by using Python scripts to automate tasks. With the help of Virtual Machine Introspection (VMI) based on Volatility, information from the guest can be retrieved without changes to the guest itself.

Usage and audience

PyREBox is commonly used for binary analysis, malware analysis, or reverse engineering. Target users for this tool are developers, forensic specialists, malware analysts, and security professionals.
