    Assalam Alaykom!! :-)

    Ok here is how it goes..

    Im Bored, tired of all the work I have to catch up with, etc..I decide to google "ACM+Ifrane", I really miss those few lovely days we spent there (despite getting the 27th position lol)..

    Anyway! I get your blog as one of the results!! Readin Morocco Day 1, Morocco Day 2, wondering, Who could this be? You brought back all the memories to me, I just loved that trip, Al7amdu lellah ! :-)

    Seeing the pictures, I find out that you are the person I asked about the Java documentation few minutes before the contest began. Actually from that documentation I was able to read about BigInteger class and use it in solving one of the problems we got (which are two:p).

    I find this a good opportunity to say Jazak Allah kol kheer :-) and of course, Alf mabrook for the great ranking :)

  4. Alsalam alikom wa ra7mat Allah wa barakatoh,

    It's a great feeling to find someone from those memorable days... I travelled last year to kuwait, came back and I really missed all those I met there... we lived only 3 days together but I really missed them all...
    This year, it was about to happen again.. we came back, and just away from allll those we met and liked over there in Ifrane...

    If you are still reading my blog, feel free to contact me...

    Jazana Allahu wa eyakom 7'ayra Al jaza2...
    and never mind about ur Rank, just work hard and u will make it next year In Shaa Allah

    Alsalam alikom wa ra7mat Allah wa barakatoh

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… :)
