I stumbled upon findcrypt2 but it seems not to work anymore. Is there a new version of findcryp2 anywhere or are there similar plugins which are able to identify different crypto algorithms by checking specific constants etc.?

Try IDAsignsrch, or the original commandline version.

  • Does it work for anyone here on Mac OS X El Capitan? Either I'm too stupid to get it running or it's not working on OS X.

I was going to recommend IDAScope but it is broken in 6.9 as well. PySide has been dropped by IDA in favor of PyQT in 6.9.

Edit: Thanks to Daniel Plohmann, the plugin now supports IDA 6.9. You can see the fixed code here: committed 2fdeed1

    I will be looking into the necessary adaptions to make IDAscope work with PyQt instead of PySide in the next two weeks. :)
