Aloha mai kākou

I'm Zion Leonahenahe Basque or rather mahaloz. I'm a Ph.D. student studying computer security at the SEFCOM Lab at ASU. My research area is broadly binary analysis, but my favorite topic is decompilation. You can find my publications on Google Scholar and my technical blog at I’m also a previous co-captain of the hacking team Shellphish. Most of the code you'll find here is reverse engineering tools, research projects made public, or CTF education material.

Here is a pick of my favorite projects:

  • Decompilation: 🔬
  • Reversing: ⏪
  • Debugging: 🐟
  • Education: 📖
Stars T Description
GitHub stars 🔬 sailr-eval is a decompiler-quality evaluation pipeline from the USENIX 2024 paper SAILR. It also contains info on finding artifacts for the SAILR algorithm.
GitHub stars 🔬 angr is a binary analysis framework used for a variety of tasks, including decompilation. I'm one of the core developers of the home-rolled decompiler. I focus on making the generated code better.
GitHub stars 🐟 decomp2dbg is an addon to GDB to sync decompilation, symbols, and metadata from a decompiler on-the-fly for the enhanced debugging of binaries.
GitHub stars 🔬 DAILA is a decompiler-agnostic plugin for integrating AI into decompilation. Currently, OpenAI and the VarBERT models are supported for various reversing tasks, like variable renaming.
GitHub stars BinSync is a decompiler-agnostic reversing plugin for cross-decompiler collaboration, built on git. Gone are the days of being unable to sync structs and types between different decompilers!
GitHub stars angr-management is the angr team self-rolled decompiler UI, which includes many plugins for interacting with the binary on multiple levels. Try it out today!
GitHub stars 📖 'ike is a prerequisite handbook for binary analysis written as a guide to prepare people new to computer science for, an automated binary exploitation teaching platform. Full site at
