libemu is a small library written in C offering basic x86 emulation and shellcode detection using GetPC heuristics. It is designed to be used within network intrusion/prevention detections and honeypots. [1]

Here are some useful information that might help you to build and compile libemu on Ubuntu machine:

  • Install some dependencies for the building process
  • sudo apt-get install build-essential git-core autoconf libtool python-dev
  • Obtaining libemu via Git
  • cd /tmp/
    git clone git://git.carnivore.it/libemu.git
  • Configure and install
  • cd /tmp/libemu/
    autoreconf -v -i
    ./configure --enable-python-bindings --prefix=/opt/libemu
    sudo make install
    sudo ldconfig -n /opt/libemu/lib

Now install the pylibemu, the python wrapper for the Libemu library

  • Install some dependencies for the building process
  • sudo apt-get install python-dev python-setuptools
  • Obtaining pylibemu via Git
  • cd /tmp/
    git clone https://github.com/buffer/pylibemu.git
  • Build and install
  • cd /tmp/pylibemu/
    sudo sh -c "echo /opt/libemu/lib > /etc/ld.so.conf.d/pylibemu.conf"
    python setup.py build
    sudo python setup.py install

Yerp.. you are good to go.
