This a short post to talk about my mac_threads plugin. The plugin can be used to analyze process/task threads in an OS X system. The information provided by the plugin includes each thread’s registers, argument (exec string), stack information, start address, user id, debugging information, priority, and more. Threads can be viewed filtered by process id or can display threads for all processes.
