Until now, to learn the art and lore of reverse engineering, you’d either have to know an expert or sweat out years of trial and error. Not any more.
Eldad Eilam’s Reversing begins with an overview of reverse engineering: what it is, what it’s good for, and the processes and tools involved. He discusses applications ranging from evaluating software quality to achieving interoperability. Then, it’s on to detailed techniques for reversing low-level software, code written in higher-level languages, and even Windows and .NET code.
Eilam introduces disassemblers, debuggers, decompilers, and other tools; then puts them to work in several applied projects, from reversing file formats to auditing program binaries. He also presents a laundry list of “antireversing” techniques -- and shows how to break protections. Discover what really lies beneath. Get this book. Bill Camarda, from the June 2005 Read Only
