brew install osslsigncode, also on MacOS, for some reason we didn't want to get into, you'll need to execute in orde for it to work:

echo /usr/local/etc/openssl* | xargs -n1 -I{} mkdir -p {}/certs
echo /usr/local/etc/openssl* | xargs -n1 -I{} ln -s {}/cert.pem {}/certs/ca-bundle.crt

  • Search for bytes: it searches for the bytes contained in the selected area "AS IS".
  • Search for similar code: identifies memory offsets or addresses in the currently selected area and ignores them when searching.
  • Search for similar code (strict): same as above but it also ignores all the constants in the currently selected area.
  • Search for same signer: searches for files signed by the same certificate to sign the loaded file.
  • Search for ImpHash: searches for files with the same import hash.
  • Search similar-to: searches for files using "similar-to" attribute by VT.
  • Customizations: a comfortable GUI allows you to customize the query by masking/unmasking opcodes and operands before querying VT.
