Update: oledump.py Version 0.0.37

Filed under: My Software,Update — Didier Stevens @ 0:00

This new version of oledump.py adds option –vbadecompressskipattributes to decompress VBA code while skipping the initial attribute definitions (those that are hidden in the MS Office VBA Editor).

Here is an example of output with option -v you are familiar with:

When replacing option -v with option –vbadecompressskipattributes, the initial attributes are no longer displayed:

These attributes are actually hidden in the MS Office VBA Editor:

I added this option because lately, I’ve analyzed several samples where I had to extract all strings for further decoding, and the strings in the attribute definitions were interfering with the decoding. With this new options, I can prevent these strings from appearing in the output.


plugin_msg.py was updated to version 0.0.3 to include plugin option -k, to display only known MSG streams.
