Query windows event log with python
lol cheeky as.
server = 'x' # name of the target computer to get event logs
source = 'x' # 'Application' # 'Security'
hand = win32evtlog.OpenEventLog(server, source)
flags = win32evtlog.EVENTLOG_BACKWARDS_READ | win32evtlog.EVENTLOG_SEQUENTIAL_READ
total = win32evtlog.GetNumberOfEventLogRecords(hand)
event_no = 1
log = win32evtlog.ReadEventLog(hand, flags, 0, )
i wanna keep going hard as i do and learn it but keep getting a nonsensical error
OverflowError: days=1834132873; must have magnitude <= 999999999
The above exception was the direct cause of the following exception:
Traceback (most recent call last):
SystemError: <built-in function ReadEventLog> returned a result with an error set
cant find much info, tried a few win32 modules to see if it made a difference.
