For those of you who are unaware, the lastest edition of the very entertaining Uninformed Journal came out recently. It’s a pretty interesting edition, though not as bulky as some of their previous releases: I hope the project isn’t losing momentum. In particular I found that the article by skape (one half of the duo who originally broke Windows Patchguard [pdf]) about dynamic analysis of memory access in arbitrary software was nice: he outlines a variety of tricks for doing this, using page tables, segment registers and runtime instrumentation, and some research areas where this would be useful, like taint propagation. There’s probably a product or two waiting in there for some enterprising company to create :-).

For those of you who enjoy Uninformed, you can also read skywings (the other half of the areformentioned duo) blog Nynaeve for regular fixes of in-depth technical information.
