#30 Unreachable opcode delete

State: closed Help

Hi, it would be nice to add the optional ability to delete unreachable opcodes. For example, many obfuscators add code like that to corrupt the control flow: ..... jump L15 //// HERE BEGIN JUNK OPCODES //// bitnot setlocal3 lessequals greaterequals newactivation pop lshift lessthan setlocal3 L15: some opcodes ....... So, if remove opcodes between jump and label(L15:) it would be clean control flow.
Hi, most of the obfuscators do also the trick with pushtrue setlocal x pushfalse setlocal y and then use these local variables to change flow with pushtrue getlocal x ifeq and then they can insert junk opcode almost everywhere... unreachable opcodes can be deleted, but this is not very useful because all of the other tricks obfuscators do...
Well, yeah, about tricks with local bool vars I know too. But they can be easily replaced by jump and then just remove it. Usual are local Boolean variables don’t change the value, they just announced at the beginning of methods.
Hi, please try new version - FFDec 1.3.0 it has new Deobfuscation menu which can remove deadcode.)
