This is the Corelan Team project page for 'mona', a debugger plugin / Exploit Development Swiss Army Knife.
This plugin replaces pvefindaddr, which is no longer supported as of mid june 2011.
- Immunity Debugger 1.83 and up. (Older versions of Immunity Debugger are not supported and may not work.)
You can download the latest version here
Immunity Debugger :
Simply drop mona.py in the PyCommands folder inside your Immunity Debugger program folder.
Check installations instructions here
Suggested Initial configuration¶
Mona has a configuration file which can be used to set 2 global options
If you don't want the pycommand to write its output into the Immunity Debugger or WinDBG program folder, you can set the
workingfolder global option. Let's say we want to store output files in named subfolders of c:\logs :
- create c:\logs
- inside Immunity Debugger, run
!mona config -set workingfolder c:\logs\%p
- inside WinDBG, run
!py mona config -set workingfolder c:\logs\%p
Note : %p will be replaced with the process name at runtime. This way, your output will be automatically categorized, making it easier to retrieve.
If your exploit development machine has modules (shell extensions, etc) which you want to exclude from searches, you can simply add them to the configuration file :
!mona config -set excluded_modules "module1.dll,module2.dll"
!mona config -add excluded_modules "module3.dll"
!py mona config -set excluded_modules "module1.dll,module2.dll"
!py mona config -add excluded_modules "module3.dll"
(if you want to remove a module from the list, simply look for
mona.ini in the Immunity Debugger program folder and edit the file)
Once you have mona installed, you can update it using the following command
!py mona update
This will attempt to update the pycommand over https. If this fails, you can still try to run
!mona update -http
!py mona update -http
You can find installation and usage instructions here
