Checking Screen Resolution

Created the Monday 11 March 2019. Updated 3 weeks ago.

Sandbox environments typically do not function as standard user workspaces; as a result, they often maintain a minimum screen resolution of 800x600 or even lower. In practice, users seldom work with such limited screen dimensions. Malware may leverage this information, detecting the screen resolution to ascertain whether it is operating on a genuine user machine or within a sandbox environment.
