Actually while using ProcessMonitor
i came across an entry with the operation "RegQueryKey
" which resulted in: "Buffer Overflow
" and Detail as : "Query: Full
, Length :176
Now i want to know what exactly is that length? Length of what? Is it the length of the key or something else, if something else - what is it? This question is troubling me a lot.
It's probably the length of a string that would be returned. In Win32, it's common to call certain functions and pass in a buffer or length of 0 for the function to fill. Usually, this causes the called function to return a value that tells the caller how big a buffer needs to be to hold the data being queried for.
