PDF Insider Demo

A small, on the fly video presentation of my new utility.

The emphasis of this application stands on parsing correctly the PDF format, if it can’t because the PDF is malformed (very common among malicious PDFs), then it provides the tools to read the objects nonetheless. I tested it on many PDF (also malicious ones) and it handles all of them very well.

As I have written this application in five days, there are still some small features I’d like to add, but most of the code is already there. I started the development of it quite some time ago on a weekend while I was sick at home and have found only now the time to finish it.

I have no plans about how and when to release it yet, but some friends of mine will start using it in real world scenarios.

P.S. Thanks to Alessandro Gario for the throughout testing.

    Hi Daniel Pistelli,

    since PDF Dissector from zynamics is too expensive for me, I hope you will release your tool soon.

    Wow, this looks very interesting.
    Could I have a pre release version to play around with it ?


  8. Sorry, but the program for now is intended for internal use only and I think it will remain that way.

    Be nice to have a simplistic tool that just strips any scripts out of a PDF file…
