something simple about x86 code obfuscation and we'll see if there is some time and some interest in it since it is not related to FASM

As an expert on obfuscation, and the author of this witty expression, I object to your usurpation of my ditty, without acknowledging my supposedly nefarious attempt to link same to fasm, since FASM is surely the pre-eminant example of cryptic code on the net. If I am not present in person, to imbibe sufficient pilsner to ignore this egregious insult, then I promise a fifteen minute address by instant messager on the late Professor Dandamudi's excellent books, perhaps restricting my comments to his last book: Guide to Assembly language programming in Linux (Springer, 2005), comparing his methods and lessons to Blum's work on the same topic Wrox, 2005).

at first quick peek, it's too theoretical, and not even a little practical

you will be surprised how practical will mazegen's example be Wink

Yes, the article on obfuscation by Linn and Debray from University of Arizona was sent to Tomasz for review, but no one could comprehend his evaluation.... Razz

As for the article, I have that one and few more which I collected in past few years (there were only few interesting articles about obfuscation). Let me know if you are interested, I can post them to you somehow.

Don't make them too hungry, I'm not sure how convincing my presentation can be...

MazeGen, I would be interested of articles that have more practical example without forgetting the technical side of it...

If you can, could you email some of them to me?

That's all I have. It is quite a poor list finally, but it is probably all what you can find about x86 obfuscations on the net Sad

General Method of Program Code Obfuscation (2002)
Obfuscation of Executable Code to Improve Resistance to Static Disassembly (2003)
Static Analysis of Executables to Detect Malicious Patterns (2003)
Z0mbie 'Permutation conditions' (VX heavens)

Please let me know if you are aware of any other articles.

I know that book and its author. Initially, it was released in Czech. It can be interesting, but a bit outdated now.

And I've sended you a PM, HyperVista Smile
