Release: strings.py

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

I’ve been using my own Python implementation of command strings for 3 years now: time for a release (it was already available on my Beta github).

-L (–length) is an option I use often: it sorts the extracted strings from shortest to longest. When analyzing malicious documents and (binary) malware, often the interesting strings are rather long.

Like in this malicious Word document, where the longest string is the malicious PowerShell command.

It also supports JSON input.

For more options and information, take a look at the help (-h) and manual (-m):
