---------------Some Brief Project Details---------------

A. Fail Safe Task Manager:

Create a simple application that will watch running processes on a windows OS and kill those that have executed for longer than a set pre-defined period, such as 1 minute, an input of processes will be added over time. It must have the ability to watch for multiple processes using their PID to see how long they have been running, and if the time out period has been reached, kill said process and do a set of pre-defined actions including send en email notification to specified email address.

B. Ping Counter:

The server receives files from a client, and before processing this file, you will implement tagging to these exe files using a small piece of PE code (must make sure it works with a variety of files) this code will ping a pre-defined server once executed, and then remove itself once it has sent and received its handshake data, so that it only runs once. The pre-defined server that is receiving the pings, will include a very simple readable log correlating to existing license data.

------------Some key points regarding the project------------

Stability and Speed

All code and code structure should be secure and easily maintained

Source code must be properly documented


This means all necessary security measures should be acknowledged and considered during development to keep data and communication secure for backend and frontend.

Examples of security measures include encryption, validation, authentication, authorization, configuration management

Maintain strong security while also maintaining strong integrity
