Hi

I ran this tool and it showed that the majority of my system files are not
signed numerically signed.

Why is this as I have Windows XP installed.

I'd also like to know what security a numeric signature gives.

Can it be forged etc.

Thanks

It (SigVerif) by default only checks 3rd-Party drivers. A Digital
Signature is basically a way to guarantee a file is valid or has not
been tampered with. Also, when you go to install some devices
XP will warn you that the drivers haven't passed XP Logo testing.
This is also part of the Signature process where MS has certified
the drivers to be compatible with XP. I believe this is done via
the Windows Hardware Quality Labs (WHQL).

Hi

Thanks for the initial help.

I've now done a scan and sinverif scanned 3436 files of which only 52 were
signed.

I don't understand cos a lot of the unsigned files are Microsoft.

I've included an extract from the log to show you 3 of them.

How is this possible???

Thanks

Are you using the "Advanced" options of the Scanner ? , if so
then it won't be unexpected to receive a tally that high. I just
did a Advanced search starting at C:\Windows with sub folder
scan enabled.

SigVerif returned:
Scanned = 7618
Signed = 5377
Unsigned = 2207

Was your XP instance originally a Clean install or an upgrade over
a previous OS ? Something in your results does not seem right.

Hi

Yep. I'm using the advanced option and just scanning System.

Originally, I had Millenium installed and then did a clean install of XPPro.

Since then, I've added SP1 and SP2

I've just scanned again and same result.

What is strange is that one of the first lines says

Plate-forme sys. expl. : Windows 2000 (x86), Version : 5.1, numéro : 2600,
version CSD : Service Pack 2

Is this right for XP Pro?
