Pylibemu
========

Pylibemu is a wrapper for the Libemu library (http://libemu.carnivore.it).


Requirements
============

- Python 2.5 or later
- Libemu


Installation
============

Pylibemu uses setuptools (http://peak.telecommunity.com/DevCenter/setuptools)

To install Pylibemu, just do:

$ python setup.py build
$ sudo python setup.py install


Usage
=====

The new Emulator method `run' was introduced in Pylibemu 0.1.3  which allows not to 
worry about details. Moreover the new Emulator attribute `offset' allows to get such
information if needed. 
 

>>> emulator = pylibemu.Emulator()
>>> emulator.run(shellcode)
0
>>> emulator.offset
4
>>> print emulator.emu_profile_output
HMODULE LoadLibraryA (
     LPCTSTR = 0x01a3f990 => 
           = "ws2_32";
) =  1906376704;
int WSAStartup (
     WORD wVersionRequested = 2;
     LPWSADATA lpWSAData = 1244272;
) =  0;
SOCKET WSASocket (
     int af = 2;
     int type = 1;
     int protocol = 0;
     LPWSAPROTOCOL_INFO lpProtocolInfo = 0;
     GROUP g = 0;
     DWORD dwFlags = 0;
) =  66;
int connect (
     SOCKET s = 66;
     struct sockaddr_in * name = 0x0012fe88 => 
         struct   = {
             short sin_family = 2;
             unsigned short sin_port = 23569 (port=4444);
             struct in_addr sin_addr = {
                 unsigned long s_addr = 339060928 (host=192.168.53.20);
             };
             char sin_zero = "       ";
         };
     int namelen = 16;
) =  0;
int recv (
     SOCKET s = 66;
     char * = 0x01a40870 =>

     int flags = 0;
) =  3072;

>>> emulator.emu_profile_truncated
False


The Emulator accepts the optional parameter `output_size' which defines how much memory 
will be reserved for storing the emulation profile dump. By default, its size is 1MB but 
it be can changed in two possible ways

>>> emulator = pylibemu.Emulator(1024)

>>> emulator = pylibemu.Emulator()
>>> emulator.set_output_size(1024)

If the reserved memory is not enough to contain the entire dump, the dump will be truncated 
and the Emulator attribute `emu_profile_truncated' will be set to True. This approach is 
needed in order not to penalize performances while analyzing some shellcodes which may produce 
several MBs dumps (such as the Metasploit windows/download_exec). If the entire dump is needed 
a really simple approach could be to check the `emu_profile_truncated' attribute after the 
shellcode emulation test, increase the reserved memory through the Emulator `set_output_size' 
method and subsequently run the shellcode emulation test again as shown above.
