Most exception-based detection relies on the fact that debuggers will trap the exception and not immediately pass it to the process being debugged for handling. The default setting on most debuggers is to trap exceptions and not pass them to the program. If the debugger doesn’t pass the exception to the process properly, that failure can be detected within the process exception-handling mechanism.
