Regular Data

This pattern generalizes ASCII and UNICODE-type (00xx00yy) data found in memory to domain-specific data formats such as bitmaps and vector data. An example of the latter could be a sequence of ...0xxx0yyy... (xxx are triplets of hex digits). A typical usage of this pattern is an analysis of corrupt dynamic memory blocks (process heap, kernel pool) where continuity of regular data across block boundary points to a possible buffer overwrite (Volume 5, page 120).
