Malware analysis tools to extract patterns of interest from files and crack obfuscation such as XOR

## Balbuzard

[Balbuzard](http://www.decalage.info/python/balbuzard) is a package of malware analysis tools in python to extract patterns of interest from suspicious files (IP addresses, domain names, known file headers, interesting strings, etc).

It can also crack malware obfuscation such as XOR, ROL, etc by bruteforcing and checking for those patterns.

## Balbuzard tools:

## When to use these tools:

## 5 minutes demo

See the [Demo](https://bitbucket.org/decalage/balbuzard/wiki/Demo/) page to see examples and test the tools by yourself in a few minutes using the provided samples.
