Description

If you had always wanted to learn how use hack a program's memory, to reverse engineer and debug software, then this is the course for you.This course is an introduction to Reverse Engineering for anyone who wants to get started in this field. It is suitable for software developers who want to learn how software works internally and also for reverse engineers who want to fix bugs where the source code is not available. Traditionally, we use tools like x64dbg, OllyDbg for reverse engineering and debugging. Howevever, those tools have their limitations as they rely on file patching to modify program behaviour. But what if the files could not be patched. Here Cheat Engine shines. Cheat Engine is a memory hacking tool. It is used by Gamers to hack games in order to cheat. Cheat Engine's main strength is its memory scanning, code injection, or process patching. This course will equip you with the knowledge and skill to use Cheat Engine in addition to whatever other tools you might already be familiar. It is also suitable for absolute beginners with no knowledge of reversing, as I will take you from zero to hero.

In this course we will learn Cheat Engine by hacking CrackMe challenges.  A CrackMe is a small program designed to test a programmer's reverse engineering skills.

What you will learn

  • How to disassemble programs into assembly code

  • Dynamic Analysis

Good explanations, but also cuts to the point. Also very friendly and easy to get a hold of if necessary to ask questions, whether it be directly related to the lessons or not. I will be signing up for more of his courses. I've done some pretty cool things with what I've learned from him.

This course is very useful, and the instructor shares everything without leaving back any bit of information, But I wish that the voice could be louder.
