Logic & binaries
What is this post about?
Malicious codes are implemented to stay hidden during the infection and operation, preventing their removal and the analysis of the code. Software analysis is a critical point in dealing with malware, since most samples employ some sort of packing or obfuscation techniques in order to thwart analysis.

Notes on fundamentals for reverse engineers
I remember the day when a friend told me that “this is fun!”- thingy we spend time doing on our weekends had a name: Reverse Engineering. I got curious about information security just after that! I really enjoy understanding deeper low-level internals of $thing. And when I decided to take a more “researcher-like” approach on it, I felt like diving into the a software developer’s perspective of computer architecture. I am planning to cover the same topic from another perspective, which is for me more comfortable and logical - I am coming from the hardware level back to software. There are plenty of extremely well written RE101 tutorials using a pletora of different tools. However not so many explaining how to get the code to analyze in first place or giving a general idea on reverse any kind of binary.
Tinkering the memory
50 shades of the memory
I have been writing lots of notes on PROLOG and logical programming and people keep asking me, why I never write about reverse engineering. So I decide to give it a try.
I will start with stuff that I think are important for reverse engineering. It will be a bit different of the approaches I see on online tutorials, so I won’t be mad or sad if this notes are not helpful for you. BUT I will be REALLY happy if someone finds it useful!
