I just realized I'm in the third place for number of posts ;). Don't worry, I'm in talks to attend your RE course and get my copy signed in person

Ok, I think I have correctly requested the MOXII3 via Paypal. Can I have confirmation?

If you are located in Massachusetts then I am happy to volunteer to help you with the orders. I already ordered mine via Amazon but I see that a lot of people are waiting patiently.

I remember reading that very document in August. Have they changed anything in it in the meantime?


Cheers,

They did add to it, @mbazaliy did a fantastic job. But from the perspective of MOXiI, what matters is that A) It's out in the open. B) I might be able to get a sample myself (still working on it). Which means I can cover it in the book.

Right now, I'm trying to compare the current version and the one from August. So far, I only found messed-up layout and missing sentences in the newer one (looked from the end of the document - maybe it looks better at the beginning).

I'll keep you posted on what I find. In case of doubt, I'll happily e-mail you the version from August.

You're absolutely right in any case that getting your fingers on an actual sample of the "software product" would be extremely interesting ... :)


Cheers,

Ah, now I see: There are two different documents (with similar names) ...

lookout-pegasus-technical-analysis.pdf
pegasus-exploits-technical-details.pdf

(sorry for the confusion)

The second one is the new one. The first one is - in its original shape and form - from August 2016. (The version of that older document that you can find online right now has a messed-up layout. Like I said, if you like the original of that one with non-broken layout, do let me know and I'll send you one.)


Cheers,

Thanks to ChrisAC for pointing out the revised paper from Lookout - like a lot of people I'd missed its release.

The August paper from Lookout is very poor - there is a lot of hand-waving, a lack of useful technical detail and the paper is marred by many minor mistakes. At first sight the new paper looks a lot better but the final judgement requires verifying of their claims. I hope that Lookout do not continue to sit on top of the sample they received and make it available to other researchers for in-depth analysis.

Just a request for clarification about ordering/paying for MOXII3 via Paypal…

When I try to transfer to Jonathan as a friend I have to provide an email or mobile phone number but all I have is this URL.

Can someone please spell out the exact process?

Edit: It's now on the main page. email : moxii3 at this site.
