Ubuntu 14.04 and 16.04 supported out of the box. 18.04 is having a problem with building QEMU See forked QEMU source at https://github.com/geohot/qemu/tree/qira to fix. Non Linux hosts may run the rest of QIRA, but cannot run the QEMU tracer. Very limited support for Mac OS X and Windows natively. The Docker image in docker should work everywhere.
See instructions on qira.me to install 1.3
cd ~/ git clone https://github.com/geohot/qira.git cd qira/ ./install.sh
- ./fetchlibs.sh will fetch the libraries for i386, armhf, armel, aarch64, mips, mipsel, and ppc
- ./tracers/pin_build.sh will install the QIRA PIN plugin, allowing --pin to work
- v1.3 -- Update using pinned python packages
- v1.2 -- Many many changes. Forced release due to v1.0 not working anymore.
- v1.1 -- Support for names and comments. Static stuff added. Register colors.
- v1.0 -- Perf is good! Tons of bugfixes. Quality software. http://qira.me/
- v0.9 -- Function indentation. haddrline added (look familiar?). Register highlighting in hexdump.
- v0.8 -- Intel syntax! Shipping CDA (cda a.out) and experimental PIN backend. Bugfixes. Windows support?
- v0.7 -- DWARF support. Builds QEMU if distributed binaries don't work. Windows IDA plugin.
- v0.6 -- Added changes before webforking. Highlight strace addresses. Default on analysis.
- v0.5 -- Fixed regression in C++ database causing wrong values. Added PowerPC support. Added "A" button.
- v0.4 -- Using 50x faster C++ database. strace support. argv and envp are there.
- v0.3 -- Built in socat, multiple traces, forks (experimental). Somewhat working x86-64 and ARM support
- v0.2 -- Removed dependency on mongodb, much faster. IDA plugin fixes, Mac version.
- v0.1 -- Initial release
At the top, you have 4 boxes, called the controls. Blue = change number, grey = fork number red = instruction address (iaddr), yellow = data address (daddr). On the left you have the vtimeline, this is the full trace of the program. The top is the start of the program, the bottom is the end/current state. More green = deeper into a function. The currently selected change is blue, red is every passthrough of the current iaddr Bright yellow is a write to the daddr, dark yellow is a read from the daddr. This color scheme is followed everywhere. Below the controls, you have the idump, showing instructions near the current change Under that is the regviewer, datachanges, hexeditor, and strace, all self explanatory.
Click on vtimeline to navigate around. Right-click forks to delete them. Click on data (or doubleclick if highlightable) to follow in data. Right-click on instruction address to follow in instruction.
Keyboard Shortcuts in web/client/controls.js
j -- next invocation of instruction k -- prev invocation of instruction shift-j -- next toucher of data shift-k -- prev toucher of data m -- go to return from current function , -- go to start of current function z -- zoom out max on vtimeline left -- -1 fork right -- +1 fork up -- -1 clnum down -- +1 clnum esc -- back shift-c -- clear all forks n -- rename instruction shift-n -- rename data : -- add comment at instruction shift-: -- add comment at data g -- go to change, address, or name space -- toggle flat/function view p -- analyze function at iaddr c -- make code at iaddr, one instruction a -- make ascii at iaddr d -- make data at iaddr u -- make undefined at iaddr
Installation on Windows (experimental)
- Install git and python 2.7.9
- Run install.bat

QIRA static has historically been such a trash heap it's gated behind -S. QIRA should not be trying to compete with IDA.
User input and the actual traces of the program should drive creation of the static database. Don't try to recover all CFGs, only what ran.
The basic idea of static is that it exists at change -1 and doesn't change ever. Each address has a set of tags, including things like name.
