Information for Reverse Engineering Day

There is a hackspace project to reverse engineer the chinese laser cutter software to discover its secrets, and allow us to make something a little bit better. So we are planning on having a day on the 15th of Jan dedicated to all things reverse engineering. It will be a day of code hacking and prodding the binary files generated by the laser cutter software.

There will be also be a couple of talks, for those that wish. I'm doing a beginner's guide to patching with Ollydbg, and Mark is doing something on the differences between the low-level guts of windows and linux.

Things you will Need

If you want to play along. Will's Demo- Windows system + Ollydbg


To be sorted out. We probably won't need any.
