Introduction to Reverse Engineering Software
by Mike Perry, Nasko Oskov
Publisher: UIUC 2004
Number of pages: 211
This book is an attempt to provide an introduction to reverse engineering software under both Linux and Microsoft Windows. The goal of this book is not to cover how to reproduce an entire program from a binary, but instead how to use the Scientific Method to deduce specific behavior and to target, analyze, extract and modify specific operations of a program, usually for interoperability purposes.
