Gathers summary details from multiple McAfee BUP files. In other words, "unbup all the things, but just get some data".


  1. Place all BUP files in directories where each BUP file's direct parent folder is the hostname of the machine from whence the BUP file was extracted.

  2. Navigate to the folder one level above the folder(s) named after each hostname containing the BUP files.

  3. Run BupSummary and specify the output file/path. Example:

    python -o output.csv

Example directory structure:

Quarantine <-- run from this directory
  +--- Machine1
  |      |
  |      +--- 41f6e7ebce.bup
  |      +--- 56fcf12345.bup
  +--- Machine2
         +--- f5c4abcd12.bup
         +--- deadbeef01.bup

Sample Output

Date,Timestamp,Timezone,Hostname,Bupname,Detection Name,Original Name,MD5,Bup Corrupt?

This code is largely based on Bupectomy by Adam Witt. He had already begun rewriting it to accomplish this when I started working on it (not on GitHub).
