Hey guys,

I wrote a new article for my site. I hope you people find in helpful. Feedback is appreciated.

Intro:
When I played the game Fallout 3, I often enjoyed playing the hacking mini-game within it. While drifting through the wastelands your character often discovers functional computers. Your character types a series of commands and performs a data dump to discover passwords. I think this mini game is clever, entertaining and fairly accurate.

It looks pretty nice. I like the real-world example you used. Also, not having played fallout, I didn't know fallout had minigames like that- that's actually pretty cool

You felt justified in making a tutorial after being schooled by a video game? You aren't embarrassed? lolz

This should be in the noober section.

I use FTK imager for my dumps. It has a hex editor built in and lets me create, like its name implies, an image of the dump. Even though you RAM has a ton of stuffz in there your OS follows a general pattern. You can get memory maps for your OS and see where stuff is generally located. Great for injections too.

lolz...but you rep me down. Pretty hypocritical.

I was not *attacking* you but just making playful bantor and pointing out something funny. It *is* funny that you made a tutorial after being schooled by a game. It's just funny...doesn't have to be insulting.

the writeup is interesting but doesn't go into too much detail, i would've liked to see a bit of how the program actually dumped memory, or maybe if there were better methods to locate a password than finding it by already knowing it.

also, i find it a bit of a stretch to call that minigame in fallout 3 accurate. it looks the part and could actually be a plausible attack with a bit of suspension of disbelief, but it is still a minigame after all.
