my free software blog
Hi to all of you reading my blog.
It’s been a while now since I last blogged, so this is going to be a long post containing a lot of things that happened.
Let’s start with one of the most important ones for myself. My idea of having an international Fellow meeting has been ‘accepted’ by you, and especially Stefano. I’m more than only pleased by the fact that one of my ideas has finally made it to a stage where it became reality. I’m really looking forward to that meeting on 11th Novembre in Bolzano/Italy and hope to see a lot of you guys there.
Okay, let’s head on to the next topic. I finally found a GNU project I can participate in and do something good(tm). I’m currently undergoing training over at GNU Savannah and am looking forward to eventually become a GNU Savannah hacker sometime. This project might be interesting for some of you aswell, as doing project submissions has a lot to do with advocacy and spreading the word. Oh, and it’s great fun.
Last but not least I’d like to extend my call-to-arms to this blog. I’ve been working on a project lately that should eventually, at some point, have a Free Software malware analyzation/sandboxing tool as outcome. The project is called penalyze2 and works with PE (Windows) executables. What it basically does is emulation of an x86 CPU and a Windows enviroment. This way malicious code can be analyzed without actually infecting a machine. Why I’m writing about a ‘call-to-arms’ is, that I’m still in need of people interested in working on that project. Its current state is that a proof-of-concept works, as in emulating/analyzing a simple helloworld application. The project, code and some more information can be found at penalyze2′s GNU Savannah project page. If you are intersted in this topic go ahead and have a look at the project page (and maybe the todo list as well ).
That would, or better put, should be all for now.
