Summary0000283: CE 6.3 - Pointer scan includes low addresses
DescriptionQuite often, pointer scanner finds addresses in the 0x0-0x400000 range.
IMHO, any offset pointing into this range should be dropped right away, whenever they are found.
It might even speed up the scan (reducing the number of addresses to be checked).
Thank you for considering.

You can do that in the pointerscanner settings (pointerpath may only be in this region: 00400000 to ffffffff)

But I don't recommend it.

In windows XP that region also often contains the stack of the main thread, which is extremely useful for pointer paths (as long as they are near the start)

Also, since windows Vista normal memory allocs are more inclined to result in that region (xp tried to ignore it, vista and later do not)

Meh, you're right; I don't know how I missed that...

BTW, the default values are 0x00000000 and 0xffffffff - even in the 64bit version.
Shouldn't it be 0x0 and 0x7fffffffffffffff, respectively for the 64bit version?


Dark Byte (developer)

it will change to 0 to 0x7fffffffffffffff if the target process is 64-bit


Csimbi (reporter)

Ah, ok; doing a 32bit now.
