McAfee BUP Tool

Just a quick post before i carry on with the rest of the IDS series.

Manually processing a lot of McAfee Bup files was getting laborious so i put together a quick python script that would do it for me.

It requires 7Zip to be installed on your system

for Linux -

sudo apt-get install p7zip-full

For Windows - It requires the 7z.exe file is either in your Environment PATH or is in the same dir as the python script.

Then its just a case of running the script pointing it at your BUP file tell it where to save and your done.

Next version will include:

  • Recursive Mode (Process DIR for all BUP Files)
  • Restore Mode (Send file to original Location)
  • More Verbose Output
