GEF (GDB Enhanced Features) - a modern experience for GDB with advanced debugging features for exploit developers & reverse engineers ☢

Overview

logo

GEF (pronounced ʤɛf - "Jeff") is a set of commands for x86/64, ARM, MIPS, PowerPC and SPARC to assist exploit developers and reverse-engineers when using old school GDB. It provides additional features to GDB using the Python API to assist during the process of dynamic analysis and exploit development. Application developers will also benefit from it, as GEF lifts a great part of regular GDB obscurity, avoiding repeating traditional commands, or bringing out the relevant information from the debugging runtime.

Instant Setup

Simply make sure you have GDB 7.7 or higher compiled with Python3 bindings, then:

> ~/.gdbinit # or alternatively from inside gdb directly $ gdb -q (gdb) pi import urllib.request as u, tempfile as t; g=t.NamedTemporaryFile(suffix='-gef.py'); open(g.name, 'wb+').write(u.urlopen('https://tinyurl.com/gef-master').read()); gdb.execute('source %s' % g.name)">
# via the install script
## using curl
$ bash -c "$(curl -fsSL http://gef.blah.cat/sh)"

## using wget
$ bash -c "$(wget http://gef.blah.cat/sh -O -)"

# or manually
$ wget -O ~/.gdbinit-gef.py -q http://gef.blah.cat/py
$ echo source ~/.gdbinit-gef.py >> ~/.gdbinit

# or alternatively from inside gdb directly
$ gdb -q
(gdb) pi import urllib.request as u, tempfile as t; g=t.NamedTemporaryFile(suffix='-gef.py'); open(g.name, 'wb+').write(u.urlopen('https://tinyurl.com/gef-master').read()); gdb.execute('source %s' % g.name)

Note: to fetch the latest of GEF (i.e. from the dev branch), simply replace in the URL to http://gef.blah.cat/dev.

You can immediately see that GEF is correctly installed by launching GDB:

$ gdb -q /path/to/my/bin
GEF for linux ready, type `gef' to start, `gef config' to configure
80 commands loaded for GDB 9.1 using Python engine 3.8
gef➤  gef help

Note: As of January 2020, GEF doesn't officially support Python 2 any longer, due to Python 2 becoming officially deprecated. If you really need GDB+Python2, use the (not actively maintained) gef-legacy instead.

Community

Discord

Note: For maintenance simplicity, the unified communities on IRC/Gitter/Slack/Discord based MatterBridge are now discontinued. The GEF Discord is now the only way for talking with us!

Highlights

gef-context

A few of GEF features include:

  • One single GDB script
  • Entirely OS Agnostic, NO dependencies: GEF is battery-included and is installable instantly
  • Fast limiting the number of dependencies and optimizing code to make the commands as fast as possible
  • Provides a great variety of commands to drastically change your experience in GDB.
  • Easily extensible to create other commands by providing more comprehensible layout to GDB Python API.
  • Full Python3 support (Python2 support was dropped - see gef-legacy).
  • Built around an architecture abstraction layer, so all commands work in any GDB-supported architecture such as x86-32/64, ARMv5/6/7, AARCH64, SPARC, MIPS, PowerPC, etc.
  • Suited for real-life apps debugging, exploit development, just as much as CTF

Documentation

Unlike other GDB plugins, GEF has an extensive and up-to-date documentation. Users are recommended to refer to it as it may help them in their attempts to use GEF. In particular, new users should navigate through it (see the FAQ for common installation problems), and the problem persists, try to reach out for help on the Discord channel or submit an issue.

    hexdump and dereference start dumping from offset

    Your issue will be closed unless you confirm the following:

    • [x] Did you use the latest version of GEF from master branch?
    • [x] Did you read the documentation first?
    • [x] Did you check closed issues?

    Step 1: Describe your environment

    • Operating System: Ubuntu 14.04 4.4.0-137-generic
    • Architecture: x64
    • GDB version (including the Python library version): gdb 8.2, python 2.7.6

    Step 2: Describe your problem

    hexdump and dereference do not print dump of exact address but they apply offset to it that increments after every single call, e.g.

  • gef fails to provide right context for aarch64 binary

    gef fails to provide right context for aarch64 binary

    Your issue will be closed unless you confirm the following:

    • [X] Did you use the latest version of GEF from master branch?
    • [X] Did you read the documentation first?
    • [X] Did you check closed issues?

    Step 1: Describe your environment

    • Operating System: Debian 10
    • Architecture: x86-64
    • GDB version (including the Python library version): GNU gdb (Debian 8.2.1-2) 8.2.1 Python 3.7.3 (default, Apr 3 2019, 05:39:12)

    Step 2: Describe your problem

    When I load certain aarch64 binaries with gef, it complains about lack of .gnu_debugdata and then it says most features won't work. I would be OK with that if it actually displayed context correctly, but it doesn't. It then believes all code is x86, and proceeds to dereference x86 registers, which of course fails.

    Steps to reproduce

    1. Load aarch64 binary without .gnu_debugdata
    2. Attempt to debug stepping as normal

    Observed Results

    I get the following warning when loading the binary

    GEF for linux ready, type `gef' to start, `gef config' to configure
    76 commands loaded for GDB 8.2.1 using Python engine 3.7
    [*] 4 commands could not be loaded, run `gef missing` to know why.
    [+] Configuration from '/home/user/.gef.rc' restored
    Reading symbols from binary...Reading symbols from .gnu_debugdata for /home/user/binary...(no debugging symbols found)...done.
    [!] '.gnu_debugdata for /home/user/binary' not found/readable
    [!] Failed to get file debug information, most of gef features will not work
    (no debugging symbols found)...done.
    gef➤  
    

    Which probably confuses gef, since it identifies the code as x86:32:

    ────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────── stack ────
    [!] Command 'dereference' failed to execute properly, reason: Unknown register.
    ────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────── registers ────
    ──────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────── code:x86:32 ────
       0x6fc195e880 <Object::Init()+168> b      0x6fc195e868 <_ZN10Object4InitEv+144>
       0x6fc195e884 <Object::Start()+0> ldr    x0,  [x0,  #16]
       0x6fc195e888 <Object::Start()+4> cbz    x0,  0x6fc195e898 <_ZN10Object5StartEv+20>
     → 0x6fc195e88c <Object::Start()+8> ldr    x8,  [x0]
       0x6fc195e890 <Object::Start()+12> ldr    x1,  [x8,  #24]
       0x6fc195e894 <Object::Start()+16> br     x1
    
    But gdb detects the architecture correctly:
    gef➤  show arch
    The target architecture is set automatically (currently aarch64)
    

    Expected results

    As per the warning, I'm not expecting most of gef features to work (although to be honest, I haven't researched why), but I expect the context and registers to be displayed correctly.

    Minimalist test case

    // compile with gcc -fPIE -pic -o my_issue.out my_issue.c
    int main(){ return 0; }
    

    Not applicable as this is heap-related. I did, however, create my own test case.

    #include <stdio.h>
    #include <string.h>
    #include <stdlib.h>
    
    int main() {
        char *name = malloc(32);

        printf("Name = %s\n", name);
    
        return 0;
    }

    Observed Results

    • What happened? This could be a description, log output, etc.

    See above. Another thing to note is that when attaching to the "level05" process locally instead of remotely (using the latest dev version of GEF), nothing happens with the heap chunks command. Though heap arenas seems to work.

    Expected results

    • What did you expect to happen?

    The heap chunks and heap arenas commands display information on the heap.

    Sorry, but I haven't tested this extensively with other binaries or architectures.

    added support for remotely specifiying debugee and re-running targets

    Hi, I've added a new option to gef-remote so you can tell the gdbserver which executable you want to run. Additionally this patch allows you to restart processes and specify arguments (when you are connected in extended-remote mode).

    Example (server started with gdbserver --multi 0.0.0.0:1337):

    gef➤  gef-remote -f /bin/ls 10.0.0.83:1337
    [+] Connected to '10.0.0.83:1337'

    And (gdbserver 0.0.0.0:1337 /bin/ls):

    [*] No debugging session active
    

    This works by adding a hook to gdb that downloads the remote info each time "continue" is executed and the PID has changed since the last time.

    One thing I had to change to make this work is that in extended-remote mode, setup_remote_environment no longer uses the file command on the local, downloaded file because then the next run would start the local file instead of the remote one. I hope this doesn't break anything in the other commands.

    Context fowarding leads to: Turn the logging off and on to make the new setting effective.

    Your issue will be closed unless you confirm the following:

    • [ ] Did you use the latest version of GEF from master branch? ( I used the install script)
    • [x] Did you read the documentation first?
    • [x] Did you check closed issues?

    Step 1: Describe your environment

    • Operating System: Ubuntu 18 (Guest VM), Windows, WSL (Host)
    • Architecture: x86_64
    • GDB version (including the Python library version): GNU gdb (Ubuntu 8.1-0ubuntu3) 8.1.0.20180409-git Python 3.6

    Step 2: Describe your problem

    Using SSH to a VM in two windows: where gef runs in one window and in the other I tried to get the tty which yields: /dev/pts/0. I then used gef config context.redirect /dev/pts/0 to redirect there. It worked for one redraw, but then fails:

    [!] Command 'context' failed to execute properly, reason: Sign not allowed in string format specifier
    [*] gdb is already running
    [Thread debugging using libthread_db enabled]
    Using host libthread_db library "/lib/x86_64-linux-gnu/libthread_db.so.1".
    warning: Currently logging to /dev/pts/0.  Turn the logging off and on to make the new setting effective.
    warning: Currently logging to /dev/pts/0.  Turn the logging off and on to make the new setting effective.
    
    

    Now it only shows this error for every redrawing of the context: warning: Currently logging to /dev/pts/0. Turn the logging off and on to make the new setting effective. Strangely, the gef window now contains the context again eventhough the redirect is still active.

    Setting and unsetting the command did not work and I'm not a pro with Linux, so I don't understand what logging this error references. I was unable to find anything useful via Google.

    Operating System

    N/A

    Describe the issue you encountered

    When debugging a remote target whose maps I can't read from e.g. procfs, I elected to load the elf directly. This makes gef.mapping.maps use __parse_gdb_info_sections instead of __parse_procfs_maps. This is fine for most sections, but it leaves the stack unmapped since the stack is not specified in the ELF header.

    This breaks the stack view of context.

    some minor ARM architecture fixes

    Description/Motivation/Screenshots

    While working with an ARM target I noticed small discrepancies in GEF which this PR aims to fix:

    • we were missing the conditional suffixes hs and lo
    • is_conditional_branch was only checking for conditional suffixes which can also be part of conditional execution instructions and thereby messing up GEFs "branch prediction"
    • ARM UAL is not obligatory and therefore an assembler can have instructions like ADDEQS vs ADDSEQ where the status register suffix and conditional suffix are in a different order

    Against which architecture was this tested ?

    "Tested" indicates that the PR works and the unit test (see docs/testing.md) run passes without issue.

    Describe the issue you encountered

    I'm using gdbserver to debug my binaries inside a docker container.

    The setup is as follows

    Host:               Container:
    --------------------------------
    gef   -> connect -> gdbserver
     |                      |
    binary  <--- volume <---
    

    Since commit 546f4b1824802f176878a41ef2117cf18537188f the stack is not displayed anymore. The stack field just displays [!] Unmapped address. Additionally I get a [*] Omitting remote file warning (see example below).

    Since commit 430d9d3f7efab6e55215c07bd1694c3a4c4cb6cd, the [*] Omitting remote file '/lib64/ld-linux-x86-64.so.2' warning is changed to several warnings of the type

    The pull request #897 removes the [*] Failed to find objfile or not a valid file format warnings but creates a Python Exception.
    The issue is not fixed in HEAD.

    Do you read the docs and look at previously closed issues/PRs for similar cases?

    Describe your issue. Without a proper reproduction step-by-step, your issue will be ignored.

    1. Place the binary to debug in the current directory
    2. Start the docker container docker run --tty --interactive --rm -v "$PWD":/workdir -w /workdir ultimator14/arch-interactive /bin/bash
    3. Start gdbserver in the container gdbserver 0.0.0.0:4101 ./mybinary
    4. Start gef outside the container gef ./mybinary
    5. Connect gef to gdbserver inside the container target remote 172.17.0.2:4101
    6. See that gef does not display the stack

    Changelog: 2022.06 - Upset Constant

    Highlights of Upset Constant

    • The unit testing structure has been re-designed to be more modular and flexible

    • The documentation has been globally updated, moved from ReadTheDocs to GithubPages, and redesigned from mkdocs to mkdocs-material

    • Countless (potential) errors were fixed thanks to more integration of type hinting

    • Debugged file formats (such as ELF) now rely on a abstraction layer. This means GEF can transparently support more file formats including PE or MachO (see gef-extras/os)

    • Remote support has been entirely rewritten and is now fully exposed via the gef.remote namespace. This includes the Qemu (user and system) support.

    • Many commands, relying on external dependencies (such as cs-dis, asm or emulate) were transfered to GEF-Extras. Therefore, GEF now has absolutely no dependency whatsoever, not even optional ones. Refer to the deprecation page of the documentation for a complete overview of the changes.

    • ida-interact has been totally removed and is now entirely of GEF-Extras only. It has also been rewritten to drop Python XMLRPC and relies on the much more advanced rpyc Python library.

    • A new subcommand appeared, gef install which allows to install commands from gef-extras on the fly, if you cannot clone the repository or just need a one-time command.

    • pcustom supports class factory allowing the structure(s) defined to collect information from the runtime

    • Some improvements were added to the stack canary detection

    • On a more personal note, this release marks the 10 years anniversary 🎂 since the first lines of GEF were written!! Thanks for using and contributing to GEF !

    Changelog: 2022.01 - Irritating Cookie

    Highlights of Irritating Cookie

    Important update: starting this release, GEF now requires GDB 8+ compiled with a Python 3.6+. If you cannot meet this requirements, you can still use previous versions of GEF, or also gef-legacy. Check out the compatibility matrix for more details.

    Major changes:

    • Internal code restructuring now exposes a bunch of new API via the gef namespace. See the API docs for complete reference
    • As a consequence, many existing functions available to gef and other plugins based on gef became obsolete and are now deprecated. Using those API will show a warning message in gef (which can be toggled off)
    • The Architecture base class has been reviewed and improved to allow new architectures to be (more) easily pluggable via a new decorator (@register_architecture)
    • Type hinting (with Python 3.6 compatibility) support, which makes the code globally more readable
    • Bunch of bugs squashed thanks to the type hinting
    • Taking advantage of Python 3.6 (again) allows to reduce code size by relying more on builtin Python classes
    • The pcustom command was entirely rewritten to allow external ctypes structures to be used by any other plugin or via the command line
    • More tests added, and the documentation updated.

    GEF - v2020.03 - Pythonic Apocalypse

    This release marks a special milestone, as Python 2 officially becomes unsupported by GEF. The main reason behind this change after 7 (!!) years of both Python 2 and 3 support is of course the fact that Python 2 has become officially unsupported since January 1st, 2020.

    This release therefore reflects the change, by making the code lighter (and faster) due to the removal of the compatibility layer. Functionally speaking, if you're already a GDB+Py3 users nothing will change for you.

    For those poor souls still obliged to use GDB + Python2 several options are open for you:

    • use the GEF remote debugging functionality to connect to your target from a GDB+Py3 client
    • use GEF-Legacy
    • just give up and enjoy a good beer.

    In addition to make GEF even cooler (especially for those who've never tried it), here are some cool goodies:

    • we are opening today a live demo environment. Young but functional locked-down environment, this will allow you to try GEF functionalities on a simple x64 ELF binaries. The credentials are gef/gef-demo.
    • this was made possible by some people asking for a Docker GEF and also a very simple Bash script that will prepare for you a nice GoTTY web shell with GEF running in it. You can now try GEF and learn debugging / pwning in literally 2 command lines.

    As usual, we hope you enjoy the changes and fixes, and feel free to drop by our IRC channel to say hi, ask questions, share cool tricks, or even just say thanks (believe or not, it does go a long way to keep us motivated to continue).

    Have fun, and happy debugging!
