Morocco...Day 3

Alsalam alikom wa ra7mat Allah wa barkatoh

Actually, I'm not so free nowadays cuz we r having exams so soon... but I prefered to post what I still remember cuz u know my memory, few days later I may forget the contest results itself :D...

Anyway, I read my last post about Morocco, last point was that we went to sleep and we left Abdalla waiting our luggage...

ah wait, I forgot to tell u something about the Hotel, when we went yesterday to the hotel, we found that Dr.Said has reserved only 3 rooms, one Single for him, 1 4-bed room for Amigos + Abdalla and 1 3-bed room for my team... this was something that annoyed me but I was just too tired to be annoyed... so I took the key and went to the room....

Next day, my mobile rang for Fajr Prayer, I tried to awake my colleagues (Mustafa & Abdel Rahman) but they were dead sleep, I prayed alone... of course I was still in my last day's clothes, then went deeeeply into sleep...

Later (at 7:30am) or something like this, they awaked me... the other team (who has already spent one night there and supposed to be somehow relaxed) went to get a breakfast for us... this was the second shock, the reservation in the hotel was No-Board... so I waked up, washed my face and went to have breakfast... we really messed up everything :D, I don't know how wives manage all these things.... u eat and mess things, then in a flash u find everything just fine again...

Anyway... we prepared ourselves to go down (there was wireless Internet only in the Receiption..) we spent some time down there till we agreed to make a contest, we went upstairs, prepared the laptops, failed to make a network (cuz Zezo's laptop didn't has a wireless Adapter) so we decided to submit on flash cards...

The contest started...
We have 3 laptops (Abdalla's, Zezo's and mine) Abdalla was the judge and he was solving problems too...

The first problem was easy, it was about Pic's algorithm (calculate the Area for a polygon on a regular grid), I didn't remember the equation, so we didn't solve it, on the other side, Amigos has the equation and they managed to solve this problem Al 7amd lellah...

We started looking at other problems, we tried to "understand" them.. then I took a problem, Abdelrahman and Mustafa took another one..
Non of them was easy, mine was about checking whether some bricks can form a water-tight cube or not.. Later that day we managed to make it output right answers al 7amd lellah..
I don't remember the others' problems....

It's now about 5:20pm, we decided to stop the contest, cuz we didn't have lunch till now and the AU Guys was supposed to arrive at 6:00pm, we went out to the Market... there were a lot of resturants, mini-markets... etc they were all seem to be not so expensive...

We choose one of them, he was making Grilled Checken, I don't remember how much did the meal cost us, but it was not bad Al 7amd lellah, we went back to the Hotel, and there was no sign for them... we asked the Receiptionests to inform us when AU Guys arrive, cuz we went to the room to eat :D ... the meal was not bad al 7amd lellah but I didn't like the Rise anyway...
After the lunch, we went down and still there was no sign for AU Guys, so we called Dr.Darhmaui to check, he appologized and asked us to come to the university to register, we took taxis and went there, actually there were not enough Taxis, so we went on 3 parts :D, I was in the last round, after arriving there, we found the others already registered, then they took us somewhere to choose the T-Shirts, actually I felt all of them are about the same size :D anyway, we picked what looks more logic to fit our bodies...

We had a pic there as I remember..

There was not much to do that day, we went back to the Hotel, Watched some LOST Series... then went to sleeeeeeeeeeeeeeep cuz there is a training tomorrow...

mmm we r not tomorrow yet... so, c u tomorrow In Shaa Allah..

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… :)
