Hacker Disassembling Uncovered

Buy
This text shows how to analyze programs without its source code, using a debugger and a disassembler, and covers hacking methods including virtual functions, local and global variables, branching, loops, objects and their hierarchy, and more.

This book is dedicated to the basics of hacking—methods of analyzing programs using a debugger and disassembler. There is huge interest in this topic, but in reality, there are very few programmers who have mastered these methods on a professional level.

The majority of publications that touch on issues of analyzing and optimizing programs, as well as creating means of protecting information, delicately tiptoe around the fact that in order to competently find "holes" in a program without having its source code, you have to disassemble them. Restoring something that even somewhat resembles the source code is still considered an extremely complex task. In the book, the author describes a technology used by hackers that gives a practically identical source code, and this includes programs in C++ as well, which are particularly difficult to disassemble.

The book gives a detailed description of ways to identify and reconstruct key structures of the source language—functions (including virtual ones), local and global variables, branching, loops, objects and their hierarchy, mathematical operators, etc. The disassembly methodology that we will look at has been formalized—i.e., it has been translated from an intuitive concept into a complete technology, available and comprehensible to almost anyone.

The book contains a large number of unique practical materials. It is organized in such a manner that it will most certainly be useful to the everyday programmer as a manual on optimizing programs for modern intelligent compilers, and to the information protection specialist as a manual on looking for so-called "bugs." The "from simple to complex" style of the book allows it to easily be used as a textbook for beginner analyzers and "code diggers."

Engineering a Compiler, Second Edition
Engineering a Compiler, Second Edition

The practice of compiler construction changes continually, in part because the designs of processors and systems change. For example, when we began to write Engineering a Compiler (eac) in 1998, some of our colleagues questioned the wisdom of including a chapter on instruction scheduling because out-of-order execution threatened to make...

Mastering Apache Maven 3
Mastering Apache Maven 3

Maven is the number one build tool used by developers for more than a decade. Maven stands out among other build tools due to its extremely extensible architecture, which is built on top of the concept "convention over configuration". This has made Maven the de-facto tool used to manage and build Java projects.
