As you may know HacDC will be holding it’s second training event, June 28, 2008.We are inviting Bow Sineath to HacDC to teach our members (and even non-members, bring your friends!) about the intricacies of reversing binaries using some of the latest tools in the field.

The following is an abstract from the trainer:

Over the past few years, reverse engineering has become a highly marketable and valuable skill backed by a number of powerful tools. With uses in incident response, vulnerability analysis, exploit development, malware analysis, DRM, and many others, the ability to reverse engineer code is becoming a very popular and desired skill. This class will teach the basics of reverse engineering, including the use of common tools, basic theory, the x86 instruction set, and identifying common code constructs. We may also delve into other issues, depending on time.

The class assumes basic programming knowledge (particularly C and/or C++) and no previous experience with IDA or the x86 instruction set. The class will consist of both lecture and practical exercises using “real world” binaries (with the exception of one).

COME OUT AND SUPPORT HACDC AND LEARN ABOUT REVERSING !
