UPX Unpacker Package

We created an UPX Unpacker package for the upcoming 5.6 version of Cerbero Suite.

From the UPX web-site: “UPX is a free, portable, extendable, high-performance executable packer for several executable formats.”

By installing the UPX Unpacker package, binaries compressed with UPX are automatically identified and unpacked as child objects.

PE, ELF and Mach-O binaries are all supported.

If for some reason a binary is not automatically unpacked, the unpacker can be invoked manually as an action.

Additionally, the unpacker can be invoked from Python.

from Pkg.UPXUnpacker.Unpack import unpack

ret, output = unpack(file_name)
# prints the unpacker output

This package will be available for all licenses of Cerbero Suite.
