Windows feature that stores specific data about applications run to help them start faster? [migrated]

do you know of a Windows feature that stores specific data about applications run to help them start faster? Asking because a forensics challenge I’m attempting to do had that as a hint to find the most recently run executable. Can I get any help?

how does teamviewer like applications work? [on hold]

I’m developing my final year project which will be an application similar like Teamviewer for android. I’m kinda new to android as well ,my question is what technology is used by teamviewer to read the screen reading and the co-ordinates that perfectly match the host device and performes the touch operation on the host device remotely. how can i implement it through code in my application that can capture the real time virtual images from the client and pass it to the host device and connection between client and host device is local means no internet i guess wifi-direct would be useful correct me if i’m wrong. This application is Android to android .

How to keep applications stateless

This may be a convoluted question, but I’m trying to get a better understanding of statelessness.

Based on what I’ve read, web applications should be stateless, meaning each request is treated as an independent transaction. As a result, Session and Cookies should be avoided (as both of them are stateful). A better approach is to use Tokens, which are stateless because nothing is stored on the server.

So I’m trying to understand, how can web applications be stateless when there is data that is being kept for my session (such as items in a shopping cart)? Are these actually being stored in a database somewhere and then periodically being purged? How does this work when you are using a token instead of cookies?

And then as a related question, are the major websites (Amazon, Google, Facebook, Twitter, etc.) actually stateless? Do they use tokens or cookies (or both)?

Fuzzing of Mobile Applications

I have used AFL recently for fuzzing of OPENSSL and it worked great. Now I am interesting in fuzzing mobile applications like I have got some apk and ipa files which i need to fuzz.

I searched on internet and findout about afl-android, ios-afl etc. However they have got less community I guess (I might be worng here) as I haven’t got enough documentation or blogs upon there usage etc.

Are there anyother Mobile Application fuzzers which work on blackbox mechanism as I mostly am dealing with apks?

Golang: Directory structure for Multiple Applications

I’m POCing a Go-app for my organization. I’ve read all of the intro docs on setting up a Go workspace, packages, etc. However, I am still unclear about the relationship amongst the recommended directory structures, packages, AND the fully-compiled applications that will eventually be deployed.

My team needs to be able to support many small, decoupled, applications –I am not sure how I can achieve this with the single-workspace-multiple-package approach, and would greatly appreciate clarification.

Thanks!

How Secure is OAuth2 for Web Applications?

Let’s consider a single page client side application, developed using HTML and Javascript.

In this case, even if the implicit or authentication code flow is being used to request Access Tokes, still the clientID and Secret would still be found in some Javascript, which might be making the token requests. Plus, passing the Access Token in the request header (or query parameter) are still visible in the network trace. Moreover the Access Token needs to be stored locally in a browser.

  • How secure it is to use OAuth2 for web based applications??
  • How the user information can be protected, if the client (browser) is compromised.

Thanks.

Is data between keyboard and web browser secure from local computer applications?

My question is about the text that I type on a keyboard while in a web browser. I understand that if the website has HTTPS the connection from my browser to the website is secure/encrypted, but what about the text that I type on the keyboard on the local computer?

For example, at an internet cafe, if you open a Chrome window and go to a secure site (HTTPS) is the text that you type on the keyboard secure from the keyboard to the browser? Can key logging software on the local computer access the text?

My concern is logging into my email account (or any other private account) on a public computer, can the password that I type be intercepted? If so, is there any way for a user of a public computer ensure the privacy of their password in this scenario?

Where to find themes for Angular to get feel of the applications as google’s any app has?

Internet is cluttered with so many material design themes , however i don’t find any of them which give look and feel like any standard app of google does.

Every google app have a very good header, footer, layout, very good components, good login/logout flow , smartly placed options in headers and well designed side menu. Though there are many ready to start templates available, i don’t find any of them as simple and beautiful as google app designs.

Below are some snapshots of the look and feel of standard google application.

Google Flights:enter image description here Google Maps:enter image description here Google Keep:enter image description here Angular Material:enter image description here Gmail:enter image description here Google Plus:enter image description here

Is there any starter template of angular 2 on wards , where the developer can just start using it where all basic template is ready and which should feel like the apps above with respect to design, components, header, footer,header options ,login/logout

I am looking for names of malware that looks for certain applications or folder or ports before further execution, what are their names? [on hold]

Title says it.

Adding on, malware similiar to stuxnet that looks specifically for date, etc, step 7 project folder.

e.g if the malware was targeting port 3306, MYSQL, it would have to scan port 3306 and then exfiltrate data, without port 3306 present on the host, it will terminate

How to disable hidden trackers, in google play store applications

So most applications, on google play have hidden trackers, analytics they don’t tell you about. This site lets you search any app shows trackers. The article explains what i’m talking about.

Example: https://reports.exodus-privacy.eu.org/reports/37324/

Article : https://theintercept.com/2017/11/24/…-android-apps/

Article : https://www.wired.com/story/android-users-to-avoid-malware-ditch-googles-app-store/

The second article explains Fdroid is partly a solution as those apps there don’t have these trackers. One other not a full solution is uninstalling the app removes the tracker.

Certain apps on google play store either open source or proprietary don’t include trackers as far as exodus-privacy.eu.org analysis is aware of, it’s possible there’s some there unaware of as they state.

Applications without trackers could later receive trackers through application updates. The other option is researching the extent of the specific trackers used in certain applications and what there been used for.

I want to know how it’s possible to disable these trackers, analytics so there not active in the background “while” using these apps.

I saw XPrivacyLua xposed module can disable certain analytics.

Appreciate all advice.
