Advanced Windows Memory Dump Analysis with Data Structures, 3rd Edition

Book Description

Advanced Memory Dump Analysis with Data Structures: Course Transcript and WinDbg Practice Exercises with Notes, Third Edition (Pattern-Oriented ... Root Cause Analysis, Debugging Courses)

The full transcript of Software Diagnostics Services training course with 12 step-by-step exercises, notes, and selected questions and answers. Learn how to navigate through memory dump space and Windows data structures to diagnose, and debug complex software incidents. The training uses a unique and innovative pattern-oriented analysis approach to speed up the learning curve. It consists of practical step-by-step exercises using WinDbg to diagnose structural and behavioral in 64-bit kernel and complete (physical) memory dumps. Additional topics include memory search, kernel linked list navigation, practical WinDbg scripting, registry, system variables and objects, device drivers and I/O. Prerequisites are basic and intermediate level Windows memory dump analysis: the ability to list processors, processes, threads, modules, apply symbols, walk through stack traces and raw stack data, diagnose such as heap corruption, CPU spike, memory leaks, access violation, wait chains and deadlocks. If you don't feel comfortable with prerequisites then Accelerated Windows Memory Dump Analysis training book is recommended before purchasing and reading this book course. Audience: Software technical support and escalation engineers, system administrators, security researchers, reverse engineers, malware and memory forensics analysts, software developers and quality assurance engineers. The 3rd edition was fully reworked to use WinDbg 10 and now covers memory dumps from Windows 10 x64. It includes additional examples from Debugging Extension (MEX). 2 new exercises were added: for JavaScript WinDbg scripting and for storage and file system filters. It also includes optional legacy exercises from the previous editions covering Windows Vista.
