Crashdumps are often underestimated source of very interesting information. It is a common belief that they are used only for application/system bugs/vulnerabilities analysis. In this presentation I would like to show a little bit different approach for this source of information. Microsoft Windows allows to change default configuration for WER/CER protocol in such a way, that all generated crashdumps will be stored in a custom storage. This is very useful in a large corporate networks, where we can find tens, hundreds or even thousands of machines, because more than a hundred crashdumps may be generated per day. In most of the cases administrators are afraid of a critical information leak (XBI, PII) via crashdumps, but could they gain some useful knowledge about the network status via this source? I will try to show what kind of benefits could be gained if we start analyzing crashdumps independently and in a little bit different perspective...
