Universal Android ADB driver for Windows – koush/UniversalAdbDriver

Posted by jpluimers on 2015/11/17

If you ever need a universal Android ADB driver for Windows, then use this one: koush/UniversalAdbDriver.

I never noticed it was there until Koushik Dutta posted about a signing trick on Google+.

Windows drivers need to be signed, so what he does is generate a self signed certificate on the fly during installation, sign the driver install it, and drop the private key of the certificate.

Each installation has its own key, Microsoft is happy, and it is proven the driver signature mechanism in Windows has a hole.

If you want to do similar things, then this commit is what you are looking for: Use a self signed, self destructing signing cert. · e8b78fe · koush/UniversalAdbDriver.

It isn’t rocket science, but not trivial C# either, so this is a great example of something that works.

CodeInspect says “Hello World”: A new Reverse-Engineering Tool for Android and Java Bytecode – via: Secure Software Engineering

Posted by jpluimers on 2015/01/29

Thanks  for mentioning this, so it got on my research list:

a new reverse-engineering framework that works on the intermediate representation Jimple and supports all the features above and a lot more.

CodeInspect supports as input format a complete Android Application Package (apk), just the Android bytecode (dex-file) or a jar-file.

In the following we will describe the different features based on a malicious Android apk.

The figure above is a screenshot of CodeInspect. As one can see, CodeInspect is based on the Eclipse RCP framework

Embarcadero is working on two 64bit iOS compilers – via: Just got another reminder from Apple about 64 bit IOS requirements

Posted by jpluimers on 2014/12/18

Interesting comment by Marco Cantu:

R&D at Embarcadero is working on a 64bit iOS compiler, oh well actually 2 of them, also C++. We’ll support 64bit and “universal binaries” (bundling both 32 and 64 bit binaries) requested by Apple.The Feb 1st requirement is only for new apps, not for updating existing ones, but still we are trying to make a solution available by that time.The roadmap describes the entire year, more than the individual release. This time around we are trying to have it public by January, covering what we expect to deliver in 2015.
