Revelo – Javascript Deobfuscator

This tool works by converts the submitted Javascript with some user-based modifications to an HTML file.  It then opens the file and extracts deobfuscated elements using the Internet Explorer engine. This tool does rely on the user to make some choices based on some understanding of the obfuscated script. While this tool does have some protections built into it, it may execute malicious code that could harm your computer, so use it with caution possibly within a virtual machine. This is just a prototype which works on windows XP
