Assembly++

Alsalam alikom wa ra7mat allah wa barakatoh

It's time for publishing... at least as we planned to.. but for our bad luck.. it's exaaaaaaaaaams' time so we have so limited time to complete the googlepages we started and to put a well formed documentation online..

But let me tell u the general Ideas we tried to demonstrate:
OOAssembly as briefly described before Here

Let me tell u an example for the language :

class Pixel
public dword x
public dword y
endClass
class Window : Pixel
public proc Initialize
...
...
endProc
public proc PutPixel
...
...
endProc
endClass
class Main
proc Main
Window wnd
call wnd.Initialize

mov ax, #3
mov wnd.X, ax
mov wnd.Y, ax
call wnd.PutPixel
endProc
endClass

This is assembly yes.. expected output size.. yes, reliable..yes, readble.. yesss, powerful.. yesss
this example demonstrates many things..
1- Inheritance : child classes contains parent's members with no dublicate code..
2- VGA Memory, u have 128 x 128 pixels, 4-bit color each memory.. that is about 8Kb memory.. any change in it will affect the output window..
3- Dynamic memory Allocation.. Window wnd is dynamically created in run time wnd will contain a pointer to the created object.. any proc can access it's local variables as offest from "loc" which is a pointer to the start address allocated for this process.. or can access it's classes member as offset of "this" which is a pointer to the start address allocated for this class instance..

- Compiler output structure :
We don't output any variables that the user created.. all variables we use r
last : Data 0
this : Data 0
loc : Data 0
tmp : Data 0

last is a pointer to the last allocated memory.. tmp is used as a temporary space for some further calculations...


This was a brief about the language and the compiler..

Another thing is the Debugger
U can debug forward or backword.. step by step or till breakpoint or whole program run..
backword navigation is smartly implemented.. we don't take snapshot of all variables and memory locations.. we keep track of the changes only...
we have watch.. quickwatch.. values inside objects of classes.. or address of the class.... etc..
stepping can be on UserLines (that OO Code written above), or on generated Assembly, or on MicroOperations level...

Another thing is dynamically debugging on a Flash model for the Computer Design... u can c leds on the registers changed and u can see the new value of them u can also c which Control Lines r currently active...etc...

this is for now.. Let's study a little :) ...

Exploiting Double Free Vulnerabilities...

Alsalam alikom wa ra7mat Allah wa barakatoh



Huh!! that's what I said when I first saw that title... but let me explain...


Double Free means that you try to free a pointer two times (which is logically can't work).
Actually windows SP2 and later (even Vista) this can be done (in somehow) and can actually corrupt the heap (Vista will shout at your face if u did) and that can make you able to use and browse the heap as you want..

Facts to know about how Windows frees your pointers:
- There is something called Lookaside buffer (fast access, small size) and another thing is FreeList(slower access, the whole memory).
- Chunk is an object of the DataStructure that holds mainly 2 things: pointer to where the next free Chunk is and pointer to the previous free one (think about it like a node in a linked list)
- The first 4 bytes of the Chunk is the BLink (BackLink) and the second 4 bytes is the FLink
- delete ptr1;
delete ptr2;
Windows takes your Chunk (for ptr1) and puts it in the Lookaside s…

Windows7 adds Math Input Panel

Alsalam alikom wa ra7mat Allah wa barakatoh…I was reading a windows team post about Input Panels improvements in Windows7 [here]. When at the end I saw a very interesting –intuitive if you wish- new thing… which is, as you guessed, the Math Input Panel…Yes, that crappy font is mine… I “drew” that by mouse as I don’t have a tablet pen/pc.You can then paste it directly into word and it’ll recognize it as an editable equation…During my tests, the output panel (the top part) hanged, but I liked that the drawing panel was still responsive and I could still write/erase… till the top one started to respond again…One other thing to know, after you click Insert (that button down there) it copies the equation in MathML [Wikipedia link] format.. which is a standard way of representing equations and hence any application that recognizes the format can insert it not as an image but as a nice editable equation…If you think it recognized something wrong, you can click “Select and Correct” then draw …

Visual Studio 2008 Not saving changes or project properties?

Alsalam alikom wa ra7mat Allah wa barakatoh (Peace upon you)I’ve recently ran into problems with VS 2008. Summarized here:When you try to edit the project properties (specially C++ projects) you are faced with a little nice message saying “Exception from HRESULT: 0xF9F0F308”. Sometimes when you are editing a file (specially large ones), VS doesn’t recognize you’ve made changes (ie doesn’t display that ‘*’ in the files tabs) hence, when you save, nothing actually gets saved. For those 2 problems, a friend explained the problem and a work around (till they officially release a fix)…Open up a Visual Studio 2008 Command Prompt Run cd "C:\Program Files (x86)\Microsoft Visual Studio 9.0\Common7\IDE" Make a backup copy of devenv.exe in case something does not work right.
ie. copy devenv.exe devenv.exe.bak Run editbin /largeaddressaware:no devenv.exe Happy VSing… :)
