Image section reference count

YogSothothYogSothoth Member Posts: 2

I'm writing a minifilter that catches IRP_MJ_ACQUIRE_FOR_SECTION_SYNCHRONIZATION to examine executables. Most DLLs are shared between processes, so I only want to examine an executable the first time it is loaded, not every time it is shared to another process. The CONTROL_AREA keeps track of the reference count, but that structure isn't publically defined (yes, I know it can be seen in the debugger). So, how can I perform my scan just once, the first time the image is mapped?
