Goodmorning gentlemen,

I would like to learn to analyze windows software ,  not malware that is too hard and I don't claim to be an expert.
This is for fun.
I am self-taught but I learned some stuff few years ago at school.
so ,  what is so important for me to learn ? Masm32 or 64bit ?DOS Era..?Debugger software etc

My background is a bit of C,java,electronic


Thanks

felipe

So, openly you are asking for advice to start RE? I guess there are other forums for that... :idea:

Hi chains,

You are welcome here to learn assembly (and disassembly :P), but the forum rules are crystal clear:
Quote
Legality of content
3. Legality of content is not a negotiable matter in the forum. Assembler programming is mainstream programming and is primarily used by professional programmers who require the performance in specialised areas. Low level coding is both allowed and encouraged but there will be no viral or trojan technology allowed including technical data under the guise of AV technology, no cracking and similar activities in the guise of "Reverse Engineering", no hacking techniques or related technology and no support or help with or reference to pirated software. There will also be no links to pages that support or display any of these or any other illegal areas of coding.

Yes I know that rules , but my englis is not very good.

JJ I have found the answer from your link !

- Are 16 bits enough?

No, not really. 16 bits under Windows are obsolete. Strangely enough, some beginners still come to the Forum with 16-bit code snippets. Only if you have a compelling and absolutely plausible excuse for avoiding modern 32-bit code, search the web for masm 16-bit linker, and then go straight to the Masm 16-bit sub-forum.

- Are 64 bits better?

Only if you are running big servers, or working with 20,000*25,000 pixel images. Jumping from 16 to 32 bits was a quantum leap, sure (remember that 640k limit?); but apart from a handful of niche cases, there is practically no gain from using 64-bit code. It is often slower, also because it occupies more space in the instruction and data caches.

ok so I can start with Masm32  :dazzled:

Welcome mate, but bare in mind Hacking stuff and retro programming is not welcome here
