While opening a binary in Ollydbg, I get a warning that the debugged program has modified the debugging registers. The following entry is in the log: Address: 7749218E Modified debug registers of main thread
DR0: old 77EC2D07, new 77D11208 DR7: old 00002155, new 00000154
After this, once the rest of the program has loaded and the execution is paused, it says: Break on single-step trap or INT1 set by application - application was unable to process exception.
The application in question is malware, so I believe this is a type of anti-debugging countermeasure.
How do I step past or patch out the above?
