CSA figuring out a system function call from a buffer

Hello,

I have an event which system functions are executed from a buffer. I would like to figure out if there is a way to match just that pattern for that function that the software calls or not.

Atypical System Behavior Checks

Access system functions from code executing in data or stack space

Included patterns: ?

Here is the event:Text

Event Text TESTMODE: The process 'C:\Program Files\Land Desktop 2005\acad.exe' (as user SomeCompany\SomeUser) attempted to access a resource which would have resulted in the user being asked the following question. 'The process C:\Program Files\Land Desktop 2005\acad.exe is attempting to invoke a system function from a buffer. Do you wish to allow this?'

Event Time 2/9/2006 9:26:05 AM

Code ACL_QUERY_RSP_TESTMODE

Re: CSA figuring out a system function call from a buffer

AutoCAD has been notorious for setting off CSA alarms. There was a bug fix published either last year or the year before for AutoCAD Lite because of it's behavior and we had to create exceptions for the network licensing application.

My solution was to add the acad.exe and aclt.exe executables to an application class that is allowed to write into memory owned by other processes and allowed to invoke system functions from code executing in data or stack space as long as the executable resides within the proper directory structure.

This seemed to be the least risky and most comprehensive exception because the patterns varied too much to make specific exceptions.

Hope this helps..

Tom,

Thankyou for your reply with a little playing around I created an system api rule that would allow acad.exe to execute system function's from a buffer.
