Thread: Code Analysis with Ollydbg

    Code Analysis with Ollydbg

    I am working with a program that loads a dll. After the dll is loaded, then it executes at the <ModuleEntryPoint>, which is in the POL1 section. The code then extracts the rest of the code to the .text section. My problem is that I cannot analyze the code in the .text section because I believe it is being treated as data rather than code.

    Is there any way I can analyze the code in the .text section?

    Thanks in advance,
    Taylor K.

    P.S. Attached is a screenshot so you know what I'm talking about.

    if you want to analyze sections that are not mapped as .code by default

    use analyzethis plugin by joe stewart

    you can grab it at openrce downloads

    there are caveats using that like if you try analysing any page that is not in
    any modules memory map it may err or give you wrong analysis

    also analysing anydata sections always come with the risk of
    inaccurate analysis like disassembling data as code

    but something is always better than nothing
    give it a spin and see if it fulfills your need

    btw for ollydbg questions there is a seperate forum
    you should consider posting your questions about ollydbg there
    to avoid moving the posts here and there by the admins

    To analyze a section different from which indicated by NtHeaders->OptionalHeader.BaseOfCode, you can use the olly's plugin "AnalyzeThis" downloadable here:
