IDA2Obj: HITB2021Sin Talk

​ 现在许多高效的 fuzz 引擎(AFL,honggfuzz,syzkaller等)都会收集语料执行时的代码覆盖率,并以此为反馈来指导变异和 fuzz 策略。对于开源的项目,通过设置编译选项,编译器就会自动帮忙插桩了。但是对于闭源的二进制文件,问题就显得比较棘手了。当前主流的做法大多还是 DBI (运行时动态插桩,如 Dynamorio,frida stalker 等)。而与此相对的就是SBI (静态插桩)了。毫无疑问,静态插桩几乎可以获得和编译器插桩一样的执行效率,可以把编译器插桩看成是 SBI 的一个特例。但是目前已有的一些 SBI 方案没有大量运用普及,大都有各自的局限性。

Run any iOS Apps in the Xcode Simulator

But now, the Simulator from M1 Mac is also the arm64 architecture. Is it possible to run the decrypted iOS App in the simulator now ?

Debug any iOS Apps on M1 Mac

We have no permission to attach the lldb to any other iOS Apps on the M1 Mac, when SIP is enabled. But we couldn’t launch the iOS Apps if SIP is disabled. It seems that fairplayd has a check for the system boot policy security mode and refuses to decrypt the iOS App macho when SIP is disabled.
