Hi Guys

I'll upload my animation in the near future, but i have it on another machine.

Otherwise I can help with some scripts to set bootloader testsigning on and if its an error, go to last state of the bootloader configuration.

It's a batch script:

Code:
md C:\backup
bcdedit /export C:\backup\bcd 
If Errorlevel 1 goto err_back 
bcdedit -set {current} testsigning Yes
If Errorlevel 1 goto err_testsign
goto reboot

:err_back
del C:\MSI
del C:\Backup
error.vbs
goto end

:err_testsign

bcdedit /import C:\Backup\bcd
error.vbs
goto end

:end

exit

:reboot

shutdown /r /t 5 /p
Sorry for my bad english: Im from switzerland...

It would be nice to see some sample animations. Please provide a link.

The TESTSIGNING is not necessary anymore. Actually it's more or less the same whatever solution you choose. Either set TESTSIGNING on and hide the fact that it is configured (the watermark). Or you simply apply patches to bootmgr and winload.exe to deactivate the signature checks and you effectively end up with the same as TESTSIGNING, although it's not configured. And maybe there was a third way (suggested by AlexYM) that I did not have time to investigate..

Whatever you choose, you will for sure have opened a security hole. Don't forget that!

Thanks for your reply

I will upload soon my custom animation and provide it

How you can turn bootmgr and winload.exe signature check off? Can you use a hex-editor to change some values in the files?

It's true... I have to create a protection for the security hole when i use the testsigning mode of bootmgr... It's necessary to create an application written in assembler to protect the PC from applications than use the testsigning security hole, I think...

Sorry for my bad english... I hope you unterstand it...

Yes that's basically what we do. If your're comfortable patching executables, you could do it manually. Otherwise wait for thaimins tool to be finished. I think the details are to be found somewhere on pages 20-30 of this thread.

For any security application it should not matter what language it's written in.

The point is that the system (after these hacks) has a number of boot related system files that is not trusted/validated in any way. Don't forget that some parts of these hacks do some of the things that a bootkit would do (ie disable signature validations). However, these are done on-disk while a bootkit would do it in-memory. But it's still completely different things..
