[Vol-users] using hex values with strings command

Hi David,
In this case I'd say "no". I have the strings and their addresses I've found in memory. I'm looking for the PIDs that have the string in it. The strings output is exactly what I want and I can use it to do mass lookups. strings is quite nice for this job!
I'll look more into yara rules. I need something that can be easy to use for many strings.
I am currently using encase and excel to export and format my memory hits. It only takes a few minutes to make the strings input file. This fits the bill for what I am using exactly if it is ascii, but not so well for binary.
I'll look closer at yara rules for this.
Thanks and have a great weekend,

Hi Mike,

Does malfind plugin + yara rule(s) work for your use case?

I have read the command reference for the strings plugin and do not see an option to specify the string to look for in anything other than ascii.

Could strings be expanded to include hex values, perhaps in the form of \x55\x5e\xe2\xfd\x83\xc4 or something like that?
