pwntools – CTF Framework & Exploit Development Library
pwntools is a CTF framework and exploit development library. Written in Python, it is designed for rapid prototyping and development, and intended to make exploit writing as simple as possible.
Command-line frontends for some of the functionality are available:
- asm/disasm: Small wrapper for various assemblers.
- constgrep: Tool for finding constants defined in header files.
- cyclic: De Bruijn sequence generator and lookup tool.
- hex/unhex: Command line tools for doing common hexing/unhexing operations.
- shellcraft: Frontend to our shellcode.
- phd: Replacement for hexdump with colors.
from pwn import *
context(arch = 'i386', os = 'linux')
r = remote('exploitme.example.com', 31337)
# EXPLOIT CODE GOES HERE
pwntools is best supported on Ubuntu 12.04 and 14.04, but most functionality should work on any Posix-like distribution (Debian, Arch, FreeBSD, OSX, etc.).
Most of the functionality of pwntools is self-contained and Python-only. You should be able to get running quickly with:
pip install pwntools
However, some of the features (ROP generation and assembling/disassembling foreign architectures) require non-Python dependencies. For more information, see the complete installation instructions here.
