Potentially simple question. I have been going through some tutorials for exploit development that use !pvefindaddr for help with creating unique patterns and discovering the offset.

I know that mona has replaced pvefindaddr - but from what I can see in the examples I am following the:

!pvefindaddr suggest

Command gives you an exploit suggestion in perl, while:

!mona suggest

Basically writes you a metasploit module.

I looked at the options with:

!mona help suggest

And there don't seem to be many options available. Is it possible to get suggest to offer you exploits written in any format other than a metasploit module? I couldn't seem to get pvefindaddr working in immunity - I'm assuming it doesn't really work anymore as mona has replaced it, so I wondered if mona had any flexibility?

  • Cheers - I had a look at reverse engineering stack exchange, but I thought this might come more under security as I'm not really reverse engineering anything as I understood it? My question is more about exploit development. Commented Sep 28, 2016 at 9:17
