Hex-Rays Plugin Contest Results 2009

We are happy to announce the results of our first Hex-Rays plugin contest! The submitted files are very interesting. We are sure that you too will find them useful and increasing your productivity.

While we had no difficulties determining the first winner, the second place was not that obvious, both candidates were very good. In the end we did choose, but decided that the third place deserves the prize as well. In fact, we feel that all submissions are good and deserve a prize, but the number of winning places is always limited. Probably we will be better prepared for the next time.

We would like to thank all participants for the submissions. Many of them show new ways of using and extending IDA. See below youself ;)

Without further ado, let us announce the winners. They are:

  1. Vincent Rasneur from DenyAll with the DWARF plugin
  2. Marian Radu from Microsoft with the Adobe Flash disassembler
  3. Jan Newger with the IDAStealth plugin

Congratulations to the winners!

Here's the list of submissions in the alphabetic order:

Final notes

We would like to thank everyone who participated in the contest. It was a very agreeable experience and we will certainly be repeating it in the near future.

A note to the downloaders: please be aware that all files come from third parties. While we did our best to verify them, we can not guarantee that they work as advertised, so use them at your own risk.

For the plugin support questions, please contact the authors.
