Java Decompiler – Yet Another Fast Java Decompiler

Feb
09

I’ve heard about decompiling java class since 2007 (when I was in MIMOS) but never try it before. Maybe because I don’t really code in Java.. and I don’t really like Java 😛

But today, I’ve found something interesting to play with.. J2ME based one time password application.. Since I’m on Mac, so I’ve found that Java Decompiler (JD) is the most suitable tool to use for me..

Its also available for Windows and Linux..

Microsoft Announcing the Release of the Enhanced Mitigation Evaluation Toolkit (EMET)

Oct
28

Even as you read this, people around the world are hunting for vulnerabilities in software applications.  Odds are some of them will be successful.  Depending on their motives and what they find, your software and systems may be put at risk.  So how do you protect your software from unknown vulnerabilities that may or may not exist?  One option is to use security mitigations.

Microsoft offers a number of different mitigation technologies that are designed to make it more difficult for an attacker to exploit vulnerabilities in a given piece of software.  Take a look at Michael Howard’s article “Protecting Your Code with Visual C++ Defenses” (http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/magazine/cc337897.aspx) for a brief overview of some of these technologies.

Supported mitigations include:

  • SEHOP
  • Dynamic DEP
  • NULL page allocation
  • Heap spray allocation

New Year – 2009

Jan
01

** full update will be posted later **

I’ve spent the whole new year night to prepare :-

But here are the results :-

  • I gave my Microsoft Window$ XP’s CD to my brother and the backup (ISO) that I have with me is CORRUPTED. I’ve tried with VMWare Server 2 and 1.0.8 and I thought the problem was due to Virtual Machine Disk Format (VMDK) incompatibility, but after using VirtualBox, then only I know that the problem actually came from the ISO file. Haaaihh… What a waste…
  • The automate migration tool from CMS Made Simple to WordPress is finally finished and surprisingly it is 98.33% compatible BUT suddenly I’ve found that WordPress doesn’t have ‘content inheritance’ functionality like CMS Made Simple did… So I have stick with CMS Made Simple… Again… Haaaihh… What a waste…
