Bug Finder, A Real Win32 Extensible Passive Debugger – CodeProject

Posted by jpluimers on 2020/04/09

On my research list is [WayBack] GitHub – DareDevil73/bug-finder: Windows passive debugger.  with an article at [WayBack] Bug Finder, A Real Win32 Extensible Passive Debugger – CodeProject:

The Bug Finder is a real Win32 debugger, entirely written in Borland Delphi, which analyzes your application execution flow, so you can:

  1. Catch exceptions on the main executable, external DLLs, primary and working threads.
  2. Produce a detailed stack trace about each exception.
  3. Place a symbolic breakpoint to get, in place of a program debug break, a full stack trace log message (dynamic tracing).
  4. Produce detailed and rotative log files for a batch application behaviour inspection.
  5. Capture output of OutputDebugString API to log file (to provide extra debugging information by yourself directly into your code).
  6. Trace Process, Threads and DLLs activities.

I found documentation at [WayBackDareDevil73 … docs, but the binary dependencies and installer are on SourceForge (where the project was originally located) and CodeProject which cannot be archived so I will look into that when it pops to the top of my research list.

Hashes and their uses – The Isoblog.

Posted by jpluimers on 2020/04/09

A nice introduction to [WayBackHashes and their uses – The Isoblog covering:

  • Checksums
    • Digit sums as simple, weak checmsums
    • Better checksums: ISBN-10 as an example
    • Proper CRC checksums
  • Hashes for storage
    • Building dictionaries
    • Breaking dictionaries
    • Handling collisions
  • Cryptographic hashes

Via [WayBack] I needed to explain Bitcoin. In order to explain Bitcoin, I needed to explain Proof-of-Work and Hash structures. In order to explain Proof-of-Work and H… – Kristian Köhntopp – Google+
