Description alex 2023-09-24 19:03:59 UTC
The pyelftools 0.30 update removed the elftools.common.py3compat module, which the currently-packaged version of Pwntools uses. This causes a ModuleNotFoundError when attempting to import Pwntools. Updating to Pwntools 4.11.0 should fix this.

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
Run `from pwn import *` in Python.
Actual Results:  
Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "<stdin>", line 1, in <module>
  File "/usr/lib/python3.11/site-packages/pwn/__init__.py", line 4, in <module>
    from pwn.toplevel import *
  File "/usr/lib/python3.11/site-packages/pwn/toplevel.py", line 23, in <module>
    from pwnlib import *
  File "/usr/lib/python3.11/site-packages/pwnlib/dynelf.py", line 57, in <module>
    from pwnlib import elf
  File "/usr/lib/python3.11/site-packages/pwnlib/elf/__init__.py", line 9, in <module>
    from pwnlib.elf.corefile import Core
  File "/usr/lib/python3.11/site-packages/pwnlib/elf/corefile.py", line 79, in <module>
    from elftools.common.py3compat import bytes2str
ModuleNotFoundError: No module named 'elftools.common.py3compat'

Expected Results:  
The import statement executes without error.
