Reading assembly Code

18 posts in this topic

#1 ·  Posted (edited)

Hello,

My question is would it be possible to read an assembly Code of an executable? Like

_AssemblyRead($Process,$PointerAdress,$Value) or _AssemblyRead($Executable,$PointerAdress,$Value) ==> _Assembly("MyTool.exe",0xB61016,"CALL 00B64974")

If not would it be possible to read the HEX Data? _HEXRead("MyTool.exe", 00C1E000,  00 00 00 00|00 00 F0 7F|00 00 00 00|00 00 00 00,        ð) $Process,$Adress,$HEXData,$HEXINASCII

Answers to the Forum Rules:

---> I am asking this to create an Anti-Cheat/Anti-Crack for my program. So that if it get the wrong assembly Code it will Close the Program.

---> Only reading no writing.

I hope someone can help me ;)

If billion dollar companies can't do it, what makes you think you're any different? Honestly the time you waste trying to add preventive measures, is time you could be applying to your application's feature set, so that people will want to pay (or whatever your reasoning is behind this).

Non selling of my programs just for some "Event" Codes etc which gives addionals Features, which can some People use before it publicly get released that would be one of the main reasons. °-°

By the way I meant "can't" in my previous post. Anyhow...I am clueless as to what you meant. Maybe someone else can help.

Are you trying to prevent anybody from modifying the EXE or something else?

There is  always the option to check the hash of the ran program, but of course that check can be updated as well :)

@Jos True, not a big problem for free software :lol:, Maybe use another script to check the hash? That would only complicate things instead of making it difficult I guess...

yes, i know people who are able to read "0x578B7C240881C704050000" as

    push edi
    mov edi, dword[esp+8]
    add edi,1284

I am not a compiler-developer so i can´t do it ,  i have to use a tool called "disassembler/debugger"

Write "0x578B7C240881C704050000" into a textfile, open this file with IDA Pro (free) and voila, "translated" into assembly.

Open an *.EXE or DLL-file into IDA Pro gives you full access to the code. 

And this is the point, where someone has to start with "protection". 

And Jos is right, " there is no way to protect programs, you can only make it difficult."

Well kind of said that back in post #2, but  seems the OP tried to ignore me.

@Guinness

 mean me? well sorry i wasn't online. But to make it more clearly what i want to make.

Main Program just some program which is being checked by another Program which reads the assembly Code and If the CODE has some changes which is in the original Version can't be found at the adress it will be prevented from starting.(may from Registry preventing) at all i don't want to make it difficult at begin only to check if the Code has been changed. I hope i said it clearly engough :/

If you are using another program to check your program, then you can simply hash check using _Crypt_HashFile, TD :)

@TheDcoder well i don't want the hash but i found a solution for Assembly. ^^

https://www.autoitscript.com/forum/topic/86672-autoit-inline-assembly-udf/ but it Looks like only for using the language not to read a file. But maybe i could do this with an DLL and the DllCall Function or would that probably fail?

Now i am pretty sure that you have no idea of what you are talking about....

Do you have ever written some lines "Assembly"? And how could that solve your problem even if you would use the fasm.dll? 

Makes all no sense to me.

 

Btw. If you want to try Assembly in combination with an AutoIt-Script, try AssembleIt. You will find it in the german forum. Debugger included.

      Hello.
      I'm too stupid to see my mistake:
      To investigate the internal "dictionary" of TIFF files I'd like to read in the files in binary mode and to check, if there are more than one pages "in" this TIFF.
      Notepad++, "View as Hex" is presenting the first bytes as "49 49 2a 20 08 20 20 20 12" for the TIF attached to this posting
      The "TIFF Header Format" is easy:
      Offset 00h, 2 Byte = Byte Order, "II"=intel, "MM"=motorola. (I = 0x49)
      --> II
      Offset 02h, 2 Byte = Version Nr.
      Offset 04h, 4 Byte = pointer to first IFD entry
      Description of TIFF header: https://www.awaresystems.be/imaging/tiff/faq.html#q3
       

      Howto read and analyse the binary content correctly? This is my messy, not operational code:
       
      $sampleTiff="H:\daten\tif\11\11\111111.TIF" $h=FileOpen($sampleTiff,16) $content=FileRead($h) ConsoleWrite('@@ Debug(' & @ScriptLineNumber & ') : $content = ' & $content & @CRLF & '>Error code: ' & @error & @CRLF) ;### Debug Console FileClose($h) $type=VarGetType($content) ConsoleWrite('@@ Debug(' & @ScriptLineNumber & ') : $type = ' & $type & @CRLF & '>Error code: ' & @error & @CRLF) ;### Debug Console $ToString=BinaryToString($content) ConsoleWrite('@@ Debug(' & @ScriptLineNumber & ') : $ToString = ' & $ToString & @CRLF & '>Error code: ' & @error & @CRLF) ;### Debug Console ConsoleWrite(@CRLF & @CRLF) $content=StringTrimLeft($content,2) ; cut off the leading "0x" ConsoleWrite('@@ Debug(' & @ScriptLineNumber & ') : $content = ' & $content & @CRLF & '>Error code: ' & @error & @CRLF) ;### Debug Console for $i = 1 to 8 step 8 $next=StringMid($content,$i,2) ConsoleWrite('@@ Debug(' & @ScriptLineNumber & ') : $next = ' & $next & @CRLF & '>Error code: ' & @error & @CRLF) ;### Debug Console $Chr=BinaryToString($next) ConsoleWrite('@@ Debug(' & @ScriptLineNumber & ') : $Chr = ' & $Chr & @CRLF & '>Error code: ' & @error & @CRLF) ;### Debug Console ConsoleWrite(@CRLF & "---" & @CRLF) Next Regards, Rudi.

      Hello all! I have had some issues reading text from different types of windows, occasionally, specifically with controlgettext. 
      **Before I begin, I know there are better ways to do what I attempt in the example below. That's not the point of this post. The point is my issues with controlgettext. 
      I am about to cite an example with an application you may be familiar with called SpeedFan (v4.52). My problem is not specific to speedfan, it is simply the most recent and easily reproducible example I can think of. 
      So, the goal of the script below is to get a string of text containing the current fan RPMs from the highlighted control in the screenshot below (see "speedfan_control_details.png").

      Now, here's a simple script for grabbing the window handle and reading the text from that control: 
      $wintitle = "SpeedFan 4.52" $controlID = "197934" ;will be reformatted as "[ID:######]" $hwnd = wingethandle($wintitle) if @error<>0 then msgbox(0, "WinGetHandle", "FAILURE. @error="&@error) Exit EndIf $text = ControlGetText($hwnd, "", "[ID:"&$controlID&"]") if @error=1 then msgbox(0, "ControlGetText", "FAILURE. @error="&@error) ;failure returns "" and @error=1 Exit EndIf msgbox (0, "ControlGetText", "SUCCESS. @error="&@error &@CRLF& "$text="&$text) ;success returns string and @error=0 You'll see that the ControlGetText operation runs without error, however it does not capture any text from the control. If you explore the other controls in this one window, you'll find mixed results across the board. Neither the temps nor voltages can be read, while the log field and some other elements can be read. Even when you read the text from the whole window, those elements are not included in the visible nor hidden texts. 
       
      I have run into this issue many times in the past- inconsistencies in the ability of autoit to interact with certain controls. What is it which makes this text different than any other readable texts? Is there an alternate method of reading the text in the window/control which could work? Any and all info to help me solve this mystery and satisfy my curiosity would be greatly appreciated. 
      Thanks  -Rob C

      Hello guys
      Today I'll give you three functions to manage the list View items
      These functions will help you to do some works in your list view items
      1. list view Read
      To get the selected item text  
      2. listView_checke
      To checke an item
      3. isListViewChecked
      To see if the item is checked
      All of these functions will be illustrated by the following example
      You can download the include file from the link below
      Now with the example
      #include <easy_listView_functions.au3> #include <GUIConstantsEx.au3> #include <GuiListView.au3> #include <MsgBoxConstants.au3> Example() Func Example()  Local $idListview  GUICreate("ListView Get Item Checked State", 1000, 700)  $idListview = GUICtrlCreateListView("", 50, 30, 250, 120, 50)  _GUICtrlListView_SetExtendedListViewStyle($idListview, BitOR($LVS_EX_FULLROWSELECT, $LVS_EX_CHECKBOXES)) ; Add items $item1 = GUICtrlCreateListViewItem("item1", $idListview) $item2 = GUICtrlCreateListViewItem("item2", $idListview) _listview_Checke($idListview, "item1") $btn = GUICtrlCreateButton("&read", 100, 150, 50, 50) $btn2 = GUICtrlCreateButton("&if checked", 100, 200, 100, 50)  GUISetState(@SW_SHOW) while 1 switch GUIGetMSG() case $GUI_EVENT_CLOSE  GUIDelete() exit case $btn $read = _ListView_read($idListView) if $read then msgBox(0, "read listview", $read) else msgBox(0, "read listview", "no text ditected") endIf case $btn2 if _isListviewChecked($idListView, "item1") then msgBox(0, "get", "the item is checked") else msgBox(0, "get", "the item isn't checked") endIf endSwitch wend EndFunc   ;==>Example

      Is there anyway to create an assembly for AutoIT so that I can use that in Powershell or Dotnet supported languages like c#.
      Like I want to use the functionality of _ArrayDisplay of AutoIT in C# by creating a assmbly/library and using that in the target language.

      Hi guys, 
      I'd like to write a piece of tool that would allow me to update a certain field in our Active Directory from a comma separated csv file composed like this:

      This file, automatically generated, can hold more than 10k lines.
      Thus, I need column A to be in one variable, column B in a second one and column C in a third one.
      I'm really missing this part as updating the AD is fairly easy once the 3 variable are populated. 
      I see things like this:
      Here's my attempts at the moment:
      #include <File.au3> #include <Array.au3> Global $csv_file = @DesktopDir & "\Book1.csv" Global $aRecords If Not _FileReadToArray($csv_file,$aRecords) Then MsgBox(4096,"Error", " Error reading log to Array error:" & @error) Exit EndIf For $x = 1 to $aRecords[0] Msgbox(0,'Record:' & $x, $aRecords[$x]) ; Shows the line that was read from file $csv_line_values = StringSplit($aRecords[$x], ",",1) ; Splits the line into 2 or more variables and puts them in an array ; _ArrayDisplay($csv_line_values) ; Shows what's in the array you just created. ; $csv_line_values[0] holds the number of elements in array ; $csv_line_values[1] holds the value ; $csv_line_values[2] holds the value ; etc Msgbox(0, 0, $csv_line_values[1]) Next Any help on this please? 
      Thanks in advance
