File Type 2 IDA Database File
Developer by: Hex-Rays Category: Database Files Format: Binary
File created by IDA (The Interactive Disassembler), a program that disassembles executable files (.EXE) into low-level assembly language code; stores the disassembled data in a compressed format; used in the process of exploring executables, often for revealing potential security threats or exploitation routes.
When an IDB file is opened in IDA, the data is decompressed into a collection of files. After the database is closed, the files are then compressed back into the IDB file. This enables faster performance while the database is open and lower disk usage when closed.
