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
Setting breakpoints and stepping through code
Modify program behaviour
Patching process memory
Locating address to do memory patching
Writing custom Memory Hackers (trainers) using Cheat Engine to hack and patch memory
Creating Lua Scripts for process patching
Break and Trace
Direct Memory Patching
Knowledge of Assembly would be helpful but not compulsory
