Beginning with a basic primer on reverse engineering-including computer internals, operating systems, and assembly language-and then discussing the various applications of reverse engineering, this book provides readers with practical, in-depth techniques for software reverse engineering. The book is broken into two parts, the first deals with security-related reverse engineering and the second explores the more practical aspects of reverse engineering. In addition, the author explains how to reverse engineer a third-party software library to improve interfacing and how to reverse engineer a competitor's software to build a better product. * The first popular book to show how software reverse engineering can help defend against security threats, speed up development, and unlock the secrets of competitive products * Helps developers plug security holes by demonstrating how hackers exploit reverse engineering techniques to crack copy-protection schemes and identify software targets for viruses and other malware * Offers a primer on advanced reverse-engineering, delving into "disassembly"-code-level reverse engineering-and explaining how to decipher assembly language
Offers application debugging techniques for Microsoft .NET Framework and Windows, covering topics such as exception monitoring, crash handlers, and multithreaded deadlocks.

In Advanced Visual Basic 6, leading Visual Basic expert Matthew Curland demonstrates powerhouse techniques programmers can use to write high-performance, robust, and reusable VB code. Readers learn how to leverage the close relationships between VB, COM, and OLE Automation, extending the envelope of VBs capabilities and building high-quality, object-based systems./P> Key topics include how to: *Control VB array variables explicitly to directly access arbitrary memory locations *Call pointers to standard, cdecl, and class module functions *Aggregate complete interface implementations into any VB object *Override functions on any interface, including those implemented automatically by VB *Turn any user-defined type into a lightweight COM object *Minimize memory usage in systems with a large number of objects *Safely create and manage threads in ActiveX EXEs and DLLs *Interact with messages to customize windowed and windowless UserControl objects The CD-ROM accompanying this book contains extensive source code samples to enable all techniques without external DLLs. It also provides integrated type library add-ins for creating and editing referenced libraries, modifying binary compatib
Presents programming techniques using the common language runtime of Microsoft .NET Framework.

The Active Template Library (ATL) is a set of small, efficient, and flexible classes created by Microsoft that facilitate the creation of interoperable components for developing Windows applications. The latest version of ATL is version 8, released with Visual Studio 2005. While .NET has been getting all the attention recently, there is still a huge base of installed COM/ATL code. Many programmers are dealing with difficult issues adding new .NET code to that installed base. At the same time there are many instances where ATL is still the superior choice for new applications - applications that have to run fast and efficiently on Windows, where the CPU doesn't have the memory or bandwidth to run .NET. This book will be a godsend to developers in both of those situations. As one tech reviewer put it, "Any programmer needing to transition ATL code to .NET will need this book." The first edition was widely praised, and sold close to 20,000 units. While ATL is no longer the cutting edge of Microsoft developer tools, there should still be a strong market for authoritative, complete, deep coverage of the newest version of this standard tool.

Get the inside scoop on this critical low-level language with an architectural guide from the most reliable authority--the language's designer, Serge Lidin. Readers discover common structures, functions, and rules for designing .NET applications, explanations for how .NET executables compile, details on the .NET IL Assembler, IL Disassembler and Metadata Validation tools, and more.
Windows NT/2000 Native API Reference is absolutely unique. Currently, documentation on WIndows NT's native APIs can only be found through access to the source code or occasionally Web sites where people have chosen to share bits of insight gained through reverse engineering. This book provides the first complete reference to the API functions native to Windows NT and covers the set of services that are offered by Windows NT to both kernel- and user-mode programs. Ideal for the intermediate and advanced level user- and kernel-mode developers of Windows systems, this books is devoted to the NT native API and consists of documentation of the 210 routines included in the API. Also included are all the functions added in Windows 2000.

""If you are new to the Win32 API, but have programmed for other high-end operating systems such as UNIX or VMS, then Win32 System Programming is the book for you. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED." "--Christopher L.T. Brown, "Windows 2000 Magazine" A practical guide to the central features and functions of the Win32 API, Win32 System Programming, Second Edition, will get you up and running with Windows NT and Windows 2000. Unlike most Windows programming resources, this book focuses exclusively on the core system services--file system, memory, processes, communication, and security--rather than on the more commonly featured graphical user interface functions. Especially geared for those already familiar with UNIX or other high-end operating systems, Win32 System Programming, Second Edition, helps you to build on your knowledge base to learn Win32 features quickly and easily. This new edition has been updated and enhanced with new coverage of network programming, servers, NT services, thread performance, and synchronization. It also offers a preview of Win64, the new 64-bit API for Windows 2000. Beginning with an examination of the features required in a single-process application, the text gradually progresses to increasingly sophisticated functions relating to a multithreaded environment. You will find extensive coverage of such critical Win32 topics as: The Win32 file system Character I/O and Unicode The registry Structured exception handling Security services Memory management and DLLs Threads, process management, scheduling, and thread synchronization Interprocess communication, featuring pipes and mailslots Network programming with sockets NT services, including the service control handler, event logging, and debugging Asynchronous I/O Remote Procedure Calls Win64, covering architecture, programming models, data types, and legacy code migration Short, practical examples illustrate each topic, and are included on the accompanying CD-ROM and supporting Web site (http: //world.std.com/ jmhart/w32.htm). The appendixes compare Win32, UNIX, and the C library; and provide performance measurements and results. Win32 System Programming, Second Edition, will give you a solid grounding in the core operating system functions of the Windows environment, an understanding of Win64 for Windows 2000, and the know-how you need to put them to work. 0201703106B04062001
