hi everyone, i'm wondering how can i intercept a dll injection? I want this for blocking game cheat.So if u can help me with some code, how to do this write a post.
Thanx in advance.

Nothing short of a rootkit can prevent a programmer from loading dll's into another process on his machine - and a good programmer can circumvent that too.

I'm fairly certain that this is not the best way to solve your problem. If this is for an online solution, cheating should be prevented by the server, not by the client.

Best regards

Ok Esper, but this is possible to prevent cheaters inject on games the hacks, and i saw that my Kaspersly firewall don't alow this cheats to be injected.Like i said
it's posible but i don't know where to start.

As long as I have administrative rights, I'm fairly certain that I could load a dll into just about any process, including the kernel. I would also be able to monitor and alter any communication between a process on my computer and a server. To prevent cheating you will have to run some part of your game outside my reach. I'm not saying that it would be trivial, only that I can do it if I'm motivated enough.

Yeah, but this program that i want i want to be like sxe-injected client/server aplication , end without this aplication not to be able to play.I guess u understand, and if u load a process in game the program will exit you're game or restart with a message.It is posible, like my Kaspersky is do this i mean is blocking every dll to be injected like i saw, i can't play with cheats if i have the kaspersky firewall on.Can u help me to do this?
Agree, a 5.

Thank you, SAKryukov!

Ok Espen, thank you for nothing.
I'm just thinking aloud here.
How about getting all code segments and doing a checksum or checking all code segment sizes.

You're thinking about continously scanning the process for loaded dll's - then analyze each of them? If you could get it to work, I'd guess that would be fairly likely to fail at the next Windows update ... while probably not impossible - I'd guess you'll run up a fair maintenance bill ... still interesting thought. If you could sell the concept, you'll make a bundle on support - so my 5

If you want to verify something you will have to have an standard to verify.

That you if you want to verify a string you must have to compare it with other string. got the point?

By the way, when you say cheating in game.. i am not a game developer, but i am sure that developer create cheating point intentionally for testing. and the trainer that crack the runtime issues like "Cash", "Character health" etc, they are not injected into dll, they run independently and change the specific memory.,

I want to prevent the user to inject a dll in a specfic process.Just intercept that process and block it, and after that restart the specific aplication.
I don't know how to make this happen so that is why i came to this comunity like a saw so many tutorials/source code here.Thanx everyone for trying to help me, but i still wait for a way to do what i want.
Mohibur Rashid 17-Jul-11 23:00pm
Do you have the injected process already? or are you talking about future?
Mr.B0ne 18-Jul-11 6:51am
Most cheats inject a process in the hl.exe whatever.That i want to prevent to be happened.Get it?
