** HEADS UP ** OUTPOST USERS
I would be great, if one or more user(s) can verify this for me.
CHECKSUM PROBLEM : Outpost 4 (RC) uses SHA256 algorithm for generating, storing and verifying component's
I checked a log entry :
6:52:13 AM Component checksum stored SPYWAREBLASTER.EXE c:\windows\system32\wshtcpip.dll f53479add38200ece2a210425a7b74da
Even looking at the checksum one can make out that it is not SHA256.. Anyway I decided to check the same file for checksum using :
MD5 : a7f95a53ee055115df03588997a47d4d
Clearly the software doesnt use SHA256 (well, not even SHA1).. Moreover it doesnt (atleast I dont think so) uses MD5 although it looks similar the checksum generated is different ( FILE HAS NOT CHANGED )
I really want someone to confirm this.
CISSP, CISM, CISA, SSCP

Greater the Difficulty, SWEETER the Victory.
