efiXplorer – IDA plugin for UEFI firmware analysis and reverse engineering automation

Supported versions of Hex-Rays products: everytime we focus on last versions of IDA and Decompiler because we try to use most recent features from new SDK releases. That means we tested only on recent versions of Hex-Rays products and do not guarantee stable work on previous generations.

Why not IDApython: all code developed in C++ because it’s a more stable and performant way to support a complex plugin and get full power of most recent SDK’s features.

Supported Platforms: Windows, Linux and OSX.

Applying Types For Protocols Interfaces

This feature works only in conjunction with a HexRays decompiler. If you don’t have a HexRays decompiler, build efiXplorer without hexrays_sdk.

Vulnerabilities Scanner

efiXplorer scans drivers for the following types of vulnerabilities:

  • SMM callouts
  • OOB Write via wrong GetVariable usage (in PEI, DXE and SMM drivers)

At the end of the analysis, a chooser is displayed with the suspected vulnerabilities.

Report in JSON format

After analysis efiXplorer saves the report in JSON format.
