Zero Hour – S01E11 – The Hand

Yay, more code! If you split the view four ways and scroll each a little differently, it looks a lot more impressive. Source is:

They C++-ified the code (ie, cout instead of printf). See leftmost pane in screenshot:

   unsigned number1 = 960;

   printf("\nThe result of left shifting\n");
   printf("8 bit positions using the ");
   printf("left shift operator << is\n");
   displayBits(number1 << 8);

   printf("\nThe result of right shifting\n");
   printf("8 bit positions using the ");
   printf("right shift operator >> is\n");
   displayBits(number1 >> 8);
   return 0;

Mystery doc used as background in America’s Book of Secrets

I was watching America’s Book of Secrets – S02E10 – Presidential Assassins, and @18:57, I spotted hexdump output scrolling behind the images.  Unfortunately, the beginning frames had no obviously unique text:

But a few frames later, I spotted probably searchable text “rafrht Alwera”:

Here is where it becomes strange.  Googling for “rafrht alwera” returns just 1 hit, a PDF file that looks like it also contains hexdump output:

Opening the file in Acrobat and searching for the text “rafrht” returns one match but not the hexdump Google found.

Oddly, hexdump on the PDF does not show any “rafrht”. So what did Google and Acrobat find?

I have never seen a security/firewall system like this.  On the left, I see emacs or some variant of, the status line says “edit code: mySysScan.c“.  And the middle bottom window says “*shell*“.  The lower right is some code that I cannot make out.  The rest looks familiar but I cannot identify it.

But the bigger question is, if they were looking into how somebody broke into a system, wouldn’t either/both the Security Scan or Firewall Protection Scan have alerted when the incursion occurred?  And if they did not, why would a post mortem scan produce a different result?
