    Hi,
    Can we have a dedicated section on Reverse engineering? I have been going through some tutorials and i find it facinating.
    It would be great to discuss about it.
    Thanks

    It can come under the respective Language where we do the reverse engineering. If we have too many threads and articles related to them we can separate out like we did for many forums.

    I would not mind that but as said we need more topics to create a forum out of it.

    but then lets say a tutorial on Ollydbg, to anaylze a program (which i have been going through) doesnt really land in any particular language...
    there are other things too, like the pe (portable executable format) , disassembly and things which are related to each other under the reverse engg section.

    @saswat
    i am sure you can post some topics that will help us start this section.... :)

    I would not mind if you people can point me to some threads which should be moved to the new one you would like to have it.

    For start,
    Introduction to Cracking (All the parts) can be under this section...
    also i can post few things i have been learning (i am quite a newbie but still i think i can manage in few days hopefully ;)) and i am sure people will put in once it has a seperate place...its a big topic i have already found two sites which are dedicated for it so i am sure there can be topics..
    rest you say shabbir..

    So, you know about Olly ! Then you can crack C/C++ programs easily, can't you ??

    Why not !! I thought not many people are into cracking, so I didn't write Part IV.

    :iagree:

    But let's temporarily post our RE stuff at Ethical hacking forum, and when we have enough article (may be 20+), we can create a new forum for RE :)

    Yes and when you have 20+ Articles and forum threads I can create both of them.

    @saswat
    hey do write more parts of cracking....(for c/c++ if possible) we need them...
    and well i don't know ollydbg so much that i can crack it, just started going through lena151's tutorials, really well explained i must say.. (check out tuts4you.com), its really good...
    when i think i am good enough i'll go for craackme.ds

    hope to see you there soon ;)

    I didn't get that ?? What do you mean by "didn't work" ??!?

    If you wonder where all the printf and scanf has disappeared, let me tell you that you can see some calls to the Windows API function : msvcrt.scanf, wsprintf, wvprintf etc..

    Oh ! I see, Turbo C executables are 16-bit and Olly handles only 32 bit.

    Try to write in ANSI C.

    No no no ... Turbo C is not up to the ANSI specifications.
    The setting you changed, just changes "how" Turbo C recognises the KeyWords.
    Turbo C compiler can compile to 16-bit ONLY.

    When I said ANSI C, I meant that you should use some compiler like :
    (*) GCC
    (*) Microsoft VC++ Express (2008 or 2005)
    (*) OpenWatcom C/C++ Compiler
    (*) Digital Mars C/C++ Compiler
    (*) BloodShed DevC++ Compiler
    (*) MinGW32
    (*) DJGPP etc ..
    which conform to the latest ANSI C specifications.
