PyPi Python Versions Build Status DOI License

This tool is an implementation in Python of the Packed Executable iDentifier (PEiD) in the scope of packing detection for Windows PE files based on signatures. It uses a combination of more than 5.500 signatures merged from the following sources:

It relies on pefile for abstracting PE files and reading signatures databases.

$ pip install peid

The main tool checks the input executable against the embedded or user-defined signatures database.

$ peid --help

$ peid program.exe

$ peid program.exe --db custom_sigs_db.txt

The second tool allows to create and integrate new signatures.

$ peidsig *.exe --db path/to/userdb.txt --packer UPX --version v3.97 --author jsmith
