Worth reading: Comic explains reverse engineering
As part of the CTF (Capture The Flag) competition which ran ahead of the DEFCON hacker conference, a comic was published about reverse engineering. Part of CTF was a challenge to extract a crypto key from inside a executable file named B300.exe. The comic offers a surprisingly deep insight into the programs and techniques involved in reverse engineering as it follows a hacker team in analysing the B300.exe file. The process involves bypassing a number of anti-debugging measures in the file.
