Displaying & Editing & Searching Memory

Using d*, e*, and s* commands

One of the debugger's essential tasks is displaying or editing memory, and HyperDbg is not an exception.

You can display, edit, and search both physical and virtual addresses using the following commands.

Displaying Memory

The following command is used when we want to read the content of memory at fffff800`3ad6f010 with length of 0x50 from the memory layout view of process (4 a.k.a. system process) in a hex byte format.

HyperDbg> db fffff800`3ad6f010 l 50 pid 4
fffff800`3ad6f010 48 89 5C 24 08 48 89 6C 24 10 48 89 74 24 18 57 H.\$.H.l$.H.t$.W
fffff800`3ad6f020 41 56 41 57 48 83 EC 30 65 48 8B 04 25 20 00 00 AVAWH..0eH.. ..
fffff800`3ad6f030 00 33 DB 44 0F B7 3D C5 3F 20 00 41 8B E8 48 8B .3.D..=.? .A..H.
fffff800`3ad6f040 F2 89 5C 24 68 8B F9 4C 8B 88 C0 00 00 00 45 0F ..\$h..L......E.
fffff800`3ad6f050 B7 B1 92 00 00 00 41 8B C6 44 8B C8 89 5C 24 20 ......A..D...\$

The following example shows the content of memory at fffff800`3ad6f010 from current process layout in a Double-word value (4 bytes) and ASCII characters format.

HyperDbg> dc fffff800`3ad6f010
fffff800`3ad6f010 245C8948 6C894808 89481024 57182474 H.\$.H.l$.H.t$.W

fffff800`3ad6f080 5C8B48C3 8B485024 48602474 4130C483 .H.\$PH.t$`H..0A

The following example shows the content of memory at fffff800`3ad6f010 from current process layout in a Double-word values (4 bytes) format with the length of 0x10.

HyperDbg> dd fffff800`3ad6f010 l 10
fffff800`3ad6f010 245C8948 6C894808 89481024 57182474

The following example shows the content of memory at fffff800`3ad6f010 from current process layout in a Quad-word values (8 bytes) format.

HyperDbg> dq fffff800`3ad6f010
fffff800`3ad6f010 6C894808`245C8948 57182474`89481024

Editing Memory

The following command is used when we want to edit the content of memory at fffff800`3ad6f010 in a hex byte form and change it to 0x90 0x90 0x90 (modify three bytes).

HyperDbg> eb fffff800`3ad6f010 90 90 90

The following example is used when we want to edit the contents of memory at fffff800`3ad6f010 in Double-word values (4 bytes), change it to 245C8948 .

HyperDbg> ed fffff800`3ad6f010 245C8948

The following example is used when we want to edit the contents of memory at fffff800`3ad6f010 in Quad-word values (8 bytes), change it to 88889898`85858686 and92929393`97979898 (16 bytes).

HyperDbg> dq fffff800`3ad6f010 88889898`85858686 92929393`97979898

Searching Memory

The following command is used to search for 4156415748 starting from fffff807`7356f010 to fffff807`7356f010+ffff.

HyperDbg> sb fffff807`7356f010 l ffff 41 56 41 57 48

The following example is used when we want to search for f0cc8549 from 7FF62C9016AD to 7FF62C9016AD+fff in a different process (process id = 1dd0).

HyperDbg> sd 7FF62C9016AD pid 1dd0 l fff f0cc8549

The following example is used when we want to search for 0f450000`00c0888b 8b410000`0092b1b7 from fffff807`7356f010 to fffff807`7356f010+100.

HyperDbg> sq fffff807`7356f010 l 100 0f450000`00c0888b 8b410000`0092b1b7

If you want to perform the above actions on physical addresses, you can add ! to any of the above commands.
