That is what I guessed from looking at all your posts. And that is why I suggested you stop trying random pieces of code, and go and work through some tutorials and reference guides on the basics of C and its run-time libraries. Trying to learn programming from posting questions here is really not a good idea. A few, or many, hours of serious study will serve you much better in the long term.
I have a shared storage pointer with my console application Hercules it is defined as LPVOID most of it is displayable characters but some are just hex characters
When try to construct the string with the following CString constructer
CString mystr((LPCTSTR) mysharedptr,34); tracing it in the visual studio debugger
The code goes off into some MFC code that had an assertion specifically ASSERT(FALSE)
Sorry but you are still not giving us any useful information. What exactly is the content of mysharedptr, and what assertion are you getting? It may well be that a CString is just the wrong class for whatever problem you are trying to solve.
if you need a container to hold chunks of data which might contain a NULL, CString is the wrong container. you can use a std::vector< BYTE > (or a CByteArray, if you like MFC). or you can roll your own.
Well, most data comes down to being bytes... strings just are some set of bytes that are expected to mean something (whether according to ASCII or some other wide character standard)... if you need a generic container, you can't just use something that expects what we'd refer to as a "string".
Hi there, I am new to the programming scene. I am a Digital Forensic Investigator with the Digital Forensic Laboratory at The Directorate For Priority Crime Investigation; within the South African Police Services.
I was recently assigned to do research and analysis on compromised Verifone POS-devices. On some of the devices we do manage to extract data, which is encrypted. I investigated some of the tools the criminals use in the process.
On the malwr.com site the encryption tool PasswordGenerator.exe was uploaded and can be downloaded from there for analysis. This tool uses MACTripleDES PADRight encryption.
Is there maybe anyone that can assist me to create a tool to decrypt the data from the devices. The PWG creates an init.dat file that is uploaded to the POS device which encrypts the data that is captured and then decrypted after being downloaded with The VeriFoneDownloader.exe and then the .vfd-file is decrypted using the VeryFoneViewDataNew.exe. When the correct password is entered and the file decrypted it is saved as a .dfv-file.
All the .exe files are uploaded at malwr.com. I will upload an encrypted and decrypted file as well. (201404221348.vfd and 201404221348.dfv)
If there is anyone that can assist it would be highly appreciated.
