I've update the post to add some more information about why I joined as this question was asked in one of the other new member posts.
I've just registered with the Forum. I found this forum listed on the Easy Code MASM web site. I work in IT in the UK and have focused on security for a number of years. But have never got into the very low level detail of how the payloads which are included within tools like metasploit work. As a part of one of the certifications I'm working towards I need a working knowledge of exploits and payload and am going to use MASM to get that.
I've just read the forum rule 3 and to be clear I won't be posting about hacking techniques or anything else included in rule 3. I will only post questions about developing my MASM programming skills.
