Hex-Rays Plugin Contest Results 2018

This year, we have examined the plugins of 9 contestants, of wildly varying scopes & focus. The overall quality of this edition was very high, and many entries stood out, each one on different points.

The choice was difficult, but we finally picked the following winners:

  • First prize (3000 USD): IDArling, by Alexandre Adamski and Joffrey Guilbon
  • Second prize (2000 USD):
    IDA-Minsc, by Ali Rizvi-Santiago (Cisco/Talos)
    HexraysDeob, by Rolf Rolles (Möbius Strip Reverse Engineering)
  • Third prize (1000 USD): HeapViewer, by Daniel García Gutiérrez

Congratulations to the winners!
