NAME

sigfind - Find a binary signature in a file  

SYNOPSIS

sigfind [-b bsize ] [-o offset ] [-t template ] [-lV] [ hex_signature ] file

 

DESCRIPTION

sigfind searches through a file and looks for the hex_signature at a given offset. This can be used to search for lost boot sectors, superblocks, and partition tables.

The options are as follows:

-b bsize
Specify the block size in which to search. The default is 512 and the value must be a multiple of 512.
-o offset
Specify the offset in a block in which the signature must exist. The default is 0.
-t template
Specify a template name that defines the signature value and offset. Run with no options to get a list of supported templates.
-l
The signature is stored in little-endian ordering and must therefore be reversed.
-V
Display version
[hex_signature]
The binary signature that you are searching for. It must be given in hexadecimal format. This argument must exist if -t is not used.
file
Any raw data.

 

EXAMPLES

sigfind -o 510 -l AA55 disk.dd

sigfind -t fat disk.dd
