Microsoft's regfltr example uses the terminology of "Probed Parameters" and "Captured Parameters", which is documented here:
As far as I understand, a probed buffer is a buffer which was verified for validity and access rights, and a a captured buffer is just a buffer which was copied to a system allocated memory.
If my understanding is correct, I'm not sure I understand the motivation for mentioning the probed parameters at all - while the buffer was accessible at the time of the check, it wasn't e.g. locked or something, so it might be invalid just a moment afterwards. And indeed the code probes the buffer on access (if I understand the term "probe" at all):
Can you please clarify it for me? Thanks.
