I have been told to blog more...

So hopefully this is the start of a new blogging frenzy...

I was chatting to friend of mine about stuff I have been thinking about, and adding to my every growing list of to do lists.

One of the things I talked about a long while back now is a utility I wrote to analyse files for their entropy... in an attempt to ID malware using file compressors, and it works pretty well.

I was contemplating another strategy using the frequency of patterns to build an ID for a particular binary, this would be useless on compressed executables but!!!!

It could possibly be used to ID binaries built with different compilers/linkers even! I will report back on the success or failure at some point in the future.

Then today, wow!!! is all I can say.
