Inner Face.7z UPDATED

A high and medium resolution head model with separate eye models, both quite dense. A single texture map for the head (except the eyes) with inner lips and eyeliner areas mapped separately, UV layout exaggerating the face area. Hemispherical eyes (or somewhat hemispherical depending on the face shape) for easier eye motion. Includes 31 animation morphs.

Inner Face.7z

In this example, you write b'Hello, World!' into new_hello.txt. When the execution flow exits the inner with statement, Python writes the input bytes to the member file. When the outer with statement exits, Python writes new_hello.txt to the underlying ZIP file,

In the inner with statement in this example, you open the hello.txt member file from your archive. Then you pass the resulting binary file-like object, hello, as an argument to io.TextIOWrapper. This creates a buffered text stream by decoding the content of hello using the UTF-8 character encoding format. As a result, you get a stream of text directly from your target member file.

Throughout the broth microdilution test, it was determined that both peptides had the ability to kill bacteria despite their structural differences. It is widely known that antimicrobial peptides act primarily on the anionic membrane of microorganisms, altering the barrier function and increasing permeability [2,7,24]. There is a common feature in both peptides, a net cationic charge. This property has been widely associated with the antimicrobial activity of AMPs [25,26,27], since the surface charge density of the membrane determines the magnitude of the electrostatic attraction (Coulombica), attracting the positively charged molecules of the peptide to the negatively charged lipid membranes [28]. According to the outer surface of Gram-positive bacteria, both cationic peptides could be electrostatically attracted by anionic groups that are positioned outside the cell wall due to the presence of carboxylic groups of peptidoglycan peptides and phosphate groups of teichoic acids [29]. On the other hand, in Gram-negative bacteria, the self-promoted absorption pathway is a mechanism in which the cationic peptide displaces the divalent cations associated with lipopolysaccharides (LPS), destabilizing the macromolecular complex and facilitating internalization of the peptide towards the inner membrane [30]. Our results showed that the WT peptide exhibited greater activity against Gram-negative bacteria, while its cationic analog ΔM did this against Gram-positive bacteria, suggesting that the charge does not have a completely linear relationship with the antibacterial activity. Giangaspero et al. [25] reported that a P19 peptide analog with net charge increased to +8 showed better antimicrobial activity in yeast but reduced activity in bacteria. In another study by Jiang et al. [26], it was shown that peptides with a charge of +8 had the highest activity in Gram-negative bacteria, but reduced activity against Gram-positive bacteria in comparison to their analog with +6. To understand how the substitutions of residues decrease the antibacterial activity for Gram-negative bacteria but increase that for Gram-positive ones, we must adopt two approaches discussed below: (i) consider the external envelope of Gram-positive and Gram-negative bacteria and (ii) consider the behavior of each peptide when interacting with the membranes of both bacteria.

(i) The cell wall of Gram-positive bacteria is thicker than the wall of Gram-negative ones and can hardly be crossed by dimerized peptides. In the case of the ΔM peptide, which is more cationic than WT, the peptide chains can be repelled, avoiding dimerization and facilitating diffusion through the thick cell wall [26], while the WT peptide needs a high concentration to cross the cell wall. In contrast to Gram-positive bacteria, the antibacterial activity of the ΔM peptide in Gram-negative bacteria was reduced. Substitutions of alanines 8 and 18 for serines on the polar side of the helix could have made it difficult for the peptide to translocate through the outer membrane to reach the periplasmic space and the inner membrane surface. Permeabilization of the inner membrane is a lethal event for Gram-negative bacteria [31]. The substitution of these hydrophobic amino acids could decrease the ability for insertion into the hydrophobic core of the outer or inner membrane, as the affinity for lipids decreases. Hydrophobicity is an important parameter for the antibacterial activity of the peptide, since it controls the extent to which the peptide can be introduced into the hydrophobic core of the membrane [24]. In a previous study, it was determined that the reduction in hydrophobicity due to the absence of amino acids with large aliphatic side chains completely abolished the activity against Gram-negative and Gram-positive bacteria [25]. Other studies support the idea that hydrophobicity is more related to hemolytic activity than to antibacterial activity [32,33]. However, our results showed that hemolytic activity increased as a result of hydrophobic amino acid substitutions. This could be due to the fact that the ΔM peptide, being more cationic, is more strongly attracted by the negative charge of sialic acid, a component of the glycocalyx that forms the outer layer of erythrocytes [31].

Memecat Battlestation [Shareware Demo Edition] was a really simple challenge that really involved opening a .NET executable in a debugger and reading the correct phrases from the code. It was a good beginner challenge.

The data compression ratio is defined as \(\fracuc\) where u is the size of the uncompressed memory dump in bytes and c is the size of the compressed memory dump in bytes. To compute the compression ratio, we ran all methods of MemScrimper on all collected memory dumps and compared the sizes. The average compression ratio of each method is depicted in Table 2. A first (rather unsurprising) observation is that \(\mathtt 7z\) is superior to both \(\mathtt gz\) and \(\mathtt bz2\), which is also why we will only consider \(\mathtt 7z\) for the remaining data compression ratio evaluation. Another observation is that while \(\mathrm Intra^x\) yields a better compression ratio than the individual compression methods alone, the improvement is not significant. The standalone \(\mathtt 7z\) method yields a compression ratio of 16.15 on the Windows XP memory dumps and 14.54 on the Windows 7 memory dumps, while \(\mathrm Intra^\mathtt 7z\) achieves a ratio of 16.55 (2.42% improvement) and 15.27 (5.02% improvement) respectively. The \(\mathrm Inter^_\delta \) method on the other hand yields compression ratios as high as 645.15 (212.91% improvement) in the case of Windows XP and 505.82 (117.45% improvement) if we use \(\mathtt 7z\) as the inner compression. Another observation is the fact that the usage of diffing (\(\delta \)) greatly improves the compression ratio. In the case of \(\mathrm Inter^\mathtt 7z_\) and \(\mathrm Inter^\mathtt 7z_\delta \), it increases the compression ratio from 206.18 to 645.15 (212.91% improvement) in the Windows XP case and from 232.61 to 505.82 (117.45% improvement) in the Windows 7 case. The usage of intra-deduplication within the new pages (\(\circlearrowleft \)) adds little to no improvement and even more interesting, it might also decrease the compression ratio, which we can see if we compare \(\mathrm Inter^\mathtt 7z_\delta \) against \(\mathrm Inter^\mathtt 7z_\circlearrowleft , \delta \) for example or \(\mathrm Inter^\mathtt 7z_\) against \(\mathrm Inter^\mathtt 7z_\circlearrowleft \). We suspect that the reason for this is that by intra-deduplicating the new pages, we remove locality information, which can be used by the \(\mathtt 7z\) utility to achieve a better compression.

In the previous evaluation step, we have measured how long it takes to decompress an entire memory dump. In fact, however, for several analyses such as signature matching it is not actually required to work on the entire dump, but just on the memory parts that were changed by the malware. To demonstrate this, we collected a total of 17 YARA [1] signatures for 17 out of 20 malware families of our data set using Malpedia [18] and various other online resources. We then matched all those YARA signatures against the previously sampled 80 memory dumps and verified that 24/80 memory dumps matched the correct signature for the given family. Since our methodology only stores memory pages in plain if they cannot be deduplicated or stored differentially, it is reasonable to assume that only these pages contain the relevant memory footprint of the given malware. To verify this, we matched all the YARA signatures against the memory dumps of the \(\mathrm Intra^\) and \(\mathrm Inter^_x\) methods without inner compression. We discovered that the compressed memory dumps matched all YARA rules perfectly, i.e., the matching yielded the same results as the completely uncompressed ones.

Performance-wise, the matching was also faster than on uncompressed memory dumps. While the uncompressed ones took 6.6 s on average to match all signatures, \(\mathrm Intra^\) yielded an average matching time of 1.57 s, \(\mathrm Inter^_\) took 0.14 s followed by \(\mathrm Inter^_\circlearrowleft \) (0.14 s). The best results were yielded by the \(\mathrm Inter^_\delta \) method with 0.064 s and the \(\mathrm Inter^_\delta ,\circlearrowleft \) method with 0.067 s on average. These results nicely reflect the data compression ratio, i.e., the better the compression, the smaller the file size, the faster the matching. Even if we consider the overhead of removing the inner compression, the matching is still faster than on raw uncompressed memory dumps. Consider, for example, the \(\mathrm Inter^\mathtt 7z_\delta \) method in the Windows 7 case (i.e., the worst case) where \(\texttt 7zip\) adds compression time overhead of \(27.82-24.11=3.71\) s (cf. Table 3) in which case the matching is still \(6.6-(0.064 + 3.71)=2.826\) s (43.36%) faster. 041b061a72
