Description: Process Stalking is a term coined to describe the combined process of run-time profiling, state mapping and tracing. Consisting of a series of tools and scripts the goal of a successful stalk is to provide the reverse engineer with an intuitive visual interface to filtered, meaningful, run-time block-level trace data.

The Process Stalker suite is broken into three main components; an IDA Pro plug-in, a stand alone tracing tool and a series of Python scripts for instrumenting intermediary and GML graph files. The generated GML graph definitions were designed for usage with a freely available interactive graph visualization tool.

Data instrumentation is accomplished through a series of Python utilities built on top of a fully documented custom API. Binaries, source code and in-depth documentation are available in the bundled archive. An indepth article was written and released on OpenRCE.org detailing step by step usage of Process Stalker, the article is a good starting point for understanding the basics behind the tool set.
