IDA's remote debugger is my go-to for debugging malware so that I never have to restore my VM and lose. If you're interested in trying it, I've attached some instructions on how to set it up to debug a DLL. (1/4) #malware #reverseengineering
1. Copy the remote debugger for your platform from the "dbgsrv" directory in your IDA installation directory to the debugging target and execute. -h will show you other options for configuring a password, port number etc. (2/4)
2. On the machine running IDA, select "Remote Windows Debugger" from the debugger dropdown.
3. Select Debugger -> Process Options from the menu, and fill in the parameters. Below I've included a sample configuration.
4. Select OK, and start the debugger like normal. (3/4)
Usually, I set up one main Analysis VM for running IDA, and multiple debuggee VMs running various Windows/Linux platforms. They all reside on the same host-only network. This set up has been a huge timesaver for me. Happy Reversing! (4/4)
