Today we are releasing version 1.2.0 of PDF Dissector, our PDF malware analysis tool. This release is primarily a bugfix release for the PDF parser.

Here is the detailed change list:

  • Feature: JavaScript code beautifier can now beautify selected text only
  • Feature: Improved the Adobe Reader emulator a bit
  • Bugfix: Improved handling of UTF-16BE encoded strings
  • Bugfix: Fixed a parser bug that led to crashes when parsing certain cross-references tables
