ImHex is a hex editor, a tool to display, decode and analyze binary data to reverse engineer their format, extract information or patch values in them.
This is a feature-laden hex editor.
This is free and open source software.
- Hex view with:
- Byte patching, patch management, Copy-Bytes-As-Array for many common programming languages, string and hex search, Bookmarks, Goto, Huge file support, variable column count, custom encodings.
- Pattern highlighting with a full custom C++-like pattern language that allows easy highlighting, decoding and analyzing of file formats.
- IPS patches and data import – automatically decode base64 files to hex and apply IPS and IPS32 patches directly. Changes made to a file can immediately be exported as IPS and IPS32 patches again too.
- Integrated Disassembler and YARA – disassemble a variety of different instruction sets. From x86 over ARM Cortex-M Thumb code to PowerPC. Many configuration options are available. Together with the integrated YARA rules parser it’s a great way to analyze malware.
- Data Analyzer – immediately identify known file types with the extensible file magic interface. Further analyze the data with byte distribution and entropy graphs.
- Graphical data processor – pre-process data with the easy to use data processor. Decrypt, transform or simplify the loaded data with the intuitive, node-based interface.
