we have a few interesting updates for three of our products:
BinCrowd (Collaborative reverse engineering tool; more info here)
The login bug that plagued early testers of our free BinCrowd community server should be fixed now. If you had problems logging in to your account in the past, please try again now. Note that clicking on the confirmation link in the original confirmation email was buggy too. It is possible that your account was deleted automatically because it was not confirmed within 7 days. In that case just make a new account.
We have also improved the speed of file comparisons in the web interface a lot. Even large files like Adobe Reader’s acrord32.dll are now compared to all files in the database in just a few seconds.This is absolutely amazing if you want to compare your file to different versions of the same file, for example to figure out what changed.
Another improvement was made to the BinCrowd IDA Pro plugin which you can get from the zynamics GitHub account. It can now handle the upload of larger files more gracefully. Previous versions tended to crash when giants files (roughly >50K functions) were uploaded.
PDF Tool (Malware PDF analysis tool; more info here)
Our malware PDF analysis tool without a name still has no name. However, we would like to release the first version of it really soon and that’s why we need a name. If you know a name for the tool, please let us know through comments to this post. If we name the tool after your suggestion you will get a free life-long single-user license of the PDF tool.
MSDN Parser (IDA Pro plugin for importing MSDN documentation, more info here)
Thanks to Navtej Singh, Mario Vilas, and others it was possible to improve the IDA Pro plugin that imports MSDN information into IDA Pro. Parsing of the MSDN documentation was improved and function argument names/descriptions are now copied from MSDN into IDB files. That means you now have full documentation about the function arguments of Windows API functions in your IDB files.
