    Arrow linux RCE starter

    hi everybody!

    i have put together a little "linux RCE entry point" - a reference listing
    the typical tools you need doing RCE on linux:

    debuggers, disassemblers, tracers, file editors, ...

    as well as some introductional papers ...

    as this grew too big for a post, I have loaded it up to

    this should be quite useful for a getting started reference.

    cheers, 0xf001

    hi again!

    the new 29A#8 magazine provides an interesting article for ASM coding
    under linux, related to ELF header parsing. thx to gabri3l who told me!

    i have hosted this file temporary on the linux RCE starter page, until the
    29A#8 online version is fixed.


    regards, 0xf001

    cat dump1 | more

    this guy likes to type very redundant but yes for a beginners tut it is fine!

    oltough I do not really like objdump as it is very limited and it displays in AT&T syntax

    i can be arrogant, too hehe!

    thanks for the link,

    try this
    objdump -M intel -d "yur exe" > dumpo
    cat dumpo | more
    well i kinda solved it lit four leds but dont have access to shell all the time
    and i was talking about dcrkme by discord
    running a gui app half way across the world from a windows pc with x-11
    forwarding is kinda time consuming a click takes two minutes to break on gdb running in shell
    and thanks for
    800*600 (uuuh) - OK, I will do it for you !

    thank you blabberer !

    i really missed this objdump option (-M intel). or maybe allready forgot?
    does not matter... this is indeed a very good option to remember!

    but nevertheless I do very seldom use objdump, as I prefer "real"
    disassemblers which are made for this purpose. for quick looking well, I
    still use it sometimes. my concern is more about what I called
    "it is very limited"

    well i kinda solved it lit four leds
    hehe, good! this I also did before, without even looking at the code, just
    at the function names and I guessed how the syntax for the serial must be, hehe it is a nice crackme.
    now I have disassembled the serial algorythm and am writing a keygen....

    I am making an indepth tutorial out of it, will post the link here

    anyone else working on it?

    regards, 0xf001

    update: I found a

    linux reverse engineering whitepaper by O'Reilly / _mammon

    at ptth://

    it is quite long, and includes LOTs of topics, in very nice quality, ie:

    tools and techniques, debugging, runtime monitoring (tracing, ...), disassembly (incl working with intermediate code representation), anti RE techniques, RE tool development

    and pretty much example code in it!

    definately a "must read" so I linked it on the starter page

    enjoy, 0xf001

    ps: blabberer I finally REwrote the page into real HTML so it is now independent of the screen resolution as I do not use the <pre> tag

    There "was" a "Reply" from a first time poster which was simply a "Great" and a "Rule Violating: Where can I find a tool" request. Rather than edit the post and make a Reply myself, pointing out for the umteenth time the Rules prohibiting such requests, I simply deleted the offending Post.

    How about "next time" something similar happens, you simply "assume" that an administrative decisions were made for some valid reason and not waste even more time raising questions and/or speculation that "you" might have been deprived of something "vital" to your mental health and/or reversing future.
