I really can't see the fuss. Unless you know exactly what other process has just written to memory, and exactly what that data is, I don't see what use it could possibly be to anyone.

Anyone tried debugging an application at the CPU level? There is so much going on, it would be practically impossible to know what that string of hex means, assuming you can read it in the first place.
