Annotation
In this paper, we present an extension of an existing automatically generated retargetable decompiler that is capable to parse, process, and utilize compiler-generated debugging information. This tool can be used for dealing with several security-related issues (e.g., forensics, malware analysis, vulnerability detection). Additional debugging information is used for an accurate reconstruction of platform-dependent binary applications into a well-readable high-level-language representation. The proposed solution is platform and debugging-format independent. In present, two major debugging formats - DWARF and Microsoft PDB - are supported; the extracted information is used for a recovery of several high-level constructions (e.g., variables, functions and their arguments). The proposed concept was validated by experimental results.
