  • JD-GUI

  • procyon

    • Luyten - one of the best, though a bit slow, hangs on some binaries and not very well maintained.

  • JS Beautifier
  • JS Nice - a web service guessing JS variables names and types based on the model derived from open source.


  • nudge4j - Java tool to let the browser talk to the JVM
  • dex2jar - Tools to work with Android .dex and Java .class files
  • androguard - Reverse engineering, malware and goodware analysis of Android applications
  • antinet - .NET anti-managed debugger and anti-profiler code
  • UPX - the Ultimate Packer (and unpacker) for eXecutables

Execution logging and tracing

  • Wireshark - A free and open-source packet analyzer
  • tcpdump - A powerful command-line packet analyzer; and libpcap, a portable C/C++ library for network traffic capture
  • mitmproxy - An interactive, SSL-capable man-in-the-middle proxy for HTTP with a console interface
  • Charles Proxy - A cross-platform GUI web debugging proxy to view intercepted HTTP and HTTPS/SSL live traffic
  • usbmon - USB capture for Linux.
