Description: Shockwave Flash is a very common and widely used file format that, unfortunatelly, has not been able to make its way into IDA's recognized file formats. The increasing numbers of grayware and malware SWF files require security researchers to disassemble and analyse such files and IDA is again an ideal tool to use.

The 2 plugins present in this archive will enable IDA to parse SWF files, load all SWF tags as segments for fast search and retrieval, parse all tags that can potentially contain ActionScript2 code, discover all such code(a dedicated processor module has been written for it) and even name the event functions acording to event handled in it (eg. OnInitialize).

There are two different modules: a file loader module and a processor module. Together, they make it possible to analyze Flash SWF files with IDA, as simple as that. It was very easy to install and run the plugin: just copy 2 files to the IDA subdirectories and it is ready.

Flash files can be loaded very easily into IDA, and you'll see a bytecode, as in the screenshot here below.
