Product Description

From the Back Cover

Sometimes, the best way to advance is in reverse

If you want to know how something works, you take it apart very carefully. That's exactly what this book shows you—how to deconstruct software in a way that reveals design and implementation details, sometimes even source code. Why? Because reversing reveals weak spots, so you can target your security efforts. Because you can reverse-engineer malicious code in order to neutralize it. Because understanding what makes a program work lets you build a better one. You'll learn how here.

  • Learn to read compiler-generated assembly language code for IA-32 compatible processors
  • Decipher an undocumented file format or network protocol
  • Understand when reverse engineering is legal, and when—and why—it may not be
  • See how hackers use reversing to defeat copy protection technology
  • Find out how to pull the plug on malicious code
  • Determine how to prevent others from reversing your code, and find out how effective such steps can be
  • Explore reverse engineering on the .NET platform and its assembly language, MSIL
  • Observe the dissection of a real-world malicious program and see how the attacker used it to control infected systems

Format: Paperback
This book includes a great deal of effective and practical techniques related to the subject. While reading this book it soon becomes very clear that the author is a highly experienced professional in the field. He does a wonderful job presenting the many relevant topics presented in the book. If developers want to discover vulnerabilities in their own applications, this book will give some excellent pointers. Security professionals will very likely draw some great benefits from it as well. This book is loaded with information which is generally easy to read, (more so if you are familiar with some high and low level programming languages), and remains right on topic. This book is definitely a "must read!"
