OWASP Windows Binary Executable Files Security Checks

This checklist represent a series of tests and the associated tools to perform the tasks related to thick client testing.

We define the thick client as a computer (client) in client–server architecture or networks that typically provides rich functionality independent of the central server. The focus of this checklist will be around PC/Windows architecture, although general concepts apply to all thick clients.
