Static disassembler of PPC code.

2

Developer website: Max Grosse

Machonist is a static disassembler of PPC code for Mac OS X. This software is still at alpha stage. There are many cases in which a disassembler comes in handy:
  • To examine foreign code you do not trust: Reveal and reverse engineer potential malware like viruses, worms, trojans and adware.
  • Using Machonist you do not even need to run the potentially hostile software in order to find out what it might do.
  • Protect your privacy and your data: take a deeper look at what some software actually does.
  • If you do not trust the security policy of your software vendor, you can find vulnerabilities and evaluate your personal risk. You could even fix those security flaws on your own.
  • Examine flaws and bottlenecks in your own software which might not be visible at higher-level language.
  • Educate yourself and learn the lower level of your daily work.
