This repository is archived since Rekall has been discontinued. For the Volatility 3 version of these plugins see here.


This plugin numerates all exported functions from all loaded DLLs and searches the memory for any pointer to them (essentially a search for dynamically resolved APIs). This plugin can assist in identifying dynamically resolved APIs and especially memory regions containing DLLs loaded with techniques such as reflective DLL injection.


One way to use new plugins is to copy them to the appropriate folder (e.g. rekall/plugins/windows) and to add an entry to the file, similar to this:

    from import pointer_detector

The plugin can then be used like this:

rekall -f mem.dump pointerdetector 744

  • VAD: The start address of the memory region.
  • Hit: The address where we found a pointer to an exported function.
  • Distance: The number of bytes between the last hit and this hit.
  • API: The name of the containing module and function name.
  • Count: How often this API has been found in this VAD.

ptemalfind (formerly known as ptenum)

This module implements a class to enumerate all Page Table Entries (PTEs) and a plugin (ptemalfind), using this class, which can be seen as an improved version of malfind. It retrieves a page's actual protection from its PTE value and from that its executable state, despite any hiding technique described in the following paper.

The most current version of the plugin is in this repository. Other resources:

The last version for Volatility can be found here. Note: This version is currently not being updated.

address_resolver     A windows specific address resolver plugin.                                     
aff4acquire          Copy the physical address space to an AFF4 file.                                
                         NOTE: This plugin does not require a working profile - unless the user also 
                         wants to copy the pagefile or mapped files. In that case we must analyze the
                         live memory to gather the required files.                                   
aff4dump             Dump the entire resolver contents for an AFF4 volume.                           
aff4export           Exports all the streams in an AFF4 Volume.                                      
aff4ls               List the content of an AFF4 file.                                               
analyze_struct       A plugin to analyze a memory location.                                          
api                  Generate the plugin API document.
