PE-sieve, a command line tool for investigating inline hooks

PE-sieve is a small tool for investigating inline hooks and other in-memory code patches, developed by hasherezade.

The tool, based on libpeconv (also developed by hasherezade), scans a given process and searching for the modules containing in-memory code modifications. When found, it dumps the modified PE.

Currently PE-sieve can detect inline hooks, hollowed processes and Process Doppelgänging.

Installation

In order to compile PE-Sieve (using CMake), you need to clone git repository of both PE-sieve and libpeconv:

git clone https://github.com/hasherezade/pe-sieve.git
cd pe-sieve
git clone https://github.com/hasherezade/libpeconv.git

However, the author has also released compiled versions of the tool:

Usage

When run without parameters, it displays info about the version and required arguments:
