Freebsd Write Blocker Kernel Module



Been a long time since writing a blog post so i'm coming back with this freebsd kernel module. I've started last week to code this freebsd write blocker and hope that it'll end up being a kernel module. Still there's much work to be done (reading about all that filesystem shit, kernel services that deal with the reading storage devices and blablabla). Anyway if you don't know what a write blocker is you can check it right here. There's also a linux write blocker so it's a good start for me even if freebsd kernel differs significantly from linux kernel

I'm progressing regardless of the reading stuff so you can check my project or even test it by the time the first beta release will be announced.

You can look at the code on github anastmag/freebsd-write-blocker.

I hope that from now on my blogposting will be more frequent.

I'm planning to write an article about my first trip to Fosdem 4-5 Feb that took place this year. It was amazing.

See ya.

Digital Forensics: Imaging

Hello! Sorry for being inactive so much time but summer lasted a little bit longer than usual..!

Regarding my digging in digital forensics, i decided to create a series of posts beginning with imaging. So today i will show you the three most prevalent formats of "post-mortem" imaging and how to obtain them (on a *nix system) from a test disk.

The discussed formats are the following:
(1) Raw Format
(2) Expert Witness Compression Format (or ewf)
(3) Advanced Forensic Format (or aff)

Revisiting "Stick Soldiers"

Some of you may have played the classic games Stick Soldiers 1 and 2 by WhiteSpaceUnlimited. Stick Soldiers belongs to the list of small, humble games that manage to captivate our interest and have made many of us spend a lot of our free time and have a lot of fun. (you can download them here: SS1, SS2)

Stick Soldiers has remained discontinued for the past years after the hiatus of the development team and the cancellation of the long-awaited sequel Stick Soldiers 3 by Andrew Russell Studios.

For a long time, I have aspired to revive the Stick Soldiers series by making a fan sequel to the game. Since school's start, I spent about a whole year working on a Game Maker / Ultimate3D project, aiming to evolve it to a complete and worthy sequel, which I called "Stick Soldiers: Encore". Second year of school …
