Response From Safe-Mail Team

February 29, 2008

Hi There,

Safe-Mail Team kindly replied to my previous Blog Post, here is the complete Reply

Hi,

I was amazed to read the message from “First 2008 Thoughts from a Paranoid”. What a strange conclusion…

Safe-mail.net is a private company, located in Israel.
There is no connection, there wasn’t and most likely that won’t be any connection between Safe-mail and NSA or any other agency or government (including the Israeli and American).

NSA.SAFE-MAIL.NET is one of the name servers of Safe-mail.net, just like NSB.SAFE-MAIL.NET.
NSA means: first name server (NS = “name server”, A is the first letter…).
This server, just like most of the Safe-mail.net servers, is located in one of the servers farm of “Smile Internet Gold”, which is one of the biggest ISPs in Israel.

ALL of the Safe-mail.net servers are controlled by the Safe-mail.net team only.
We don’t know/have the users passwords and the users data is strongly encrypted.
I hope that this comment helps to clear this issue.

Have a very best year,
Safe-mail.net team.

My appreciations to the Safe-Mail for the Precisations.


Eeye BinDiffing Trick

February 17, 2008

Hi,

Around here exist truly intersting tools for Binary Diffing, useful for Vulnerability Research and or Malware Analysis.

The two most famous tools are:

  • Sabre Security BinDiffv2
  • eEye Binary Diffing Suite (EBDS)

The eEye Binary Diffing Suite (EBDS) is a free and open source set of utilities for performing automated binary differential analysis, but has a little problem, seems to be explicitly developed for IDA 5.0, and no other IDA’s versions are supported.

But there is a trick to avoid that an make it working with all IDA’s Versions.

Open with Regedit the following RegKey:

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\

Uninstall\IDA Pro_is1

And change the Key Entry DisplayName with the string IDA Pro Standard v5.0 or IDA Pro Professional v5.0

and..

Happy Diffing! :)

See you to the next post.. :)
