So I’ve been trying to get more information about the funky world of JavaScript deobfuscation. It’s really fascinating what kind of protective measures and obfuscation JavaScript can reach. So whith what kind of stuff have i been playing around?

SpiderMonkey FTW!

No really, it’s easy, it’s proven and it works.  Installing is really easy…lotsa documentation also. The best part of it was that…spidermonkey does not have default support for things like document.write(); After googling I found out about 2 ways to achieve it. The first method involved changing the C files and recompiling and such…the other method was so much easier. Have a look:

part1 for a nice introduction

part2 with the solution to add document.write(); support.

For the ones interested here is the method where you need to recompile spidermonkey and such.

There are a lot more of interesting deobfuscation tools out there to play with though.
