Explaining security vulnerabilities, possible exploitation scenarios, and prevention in a systematic manner, this guide to BIOS exploitation describes the reverse-engineering techniques used to gather information from BIOS and expansion ROMs. SMBIOS/DMI exploitation techniques -- including BIOS rootkits and computer defense -- and the exploitation of embedded x86 BIOS are also covered.

This book is about the disassembly of x86 machine code into human-readable assembly, and the decompilation of x86 assembly code into human-readable C or C++ source code. Some topics covered will be common to all computer architectures.

Here are some of my notes about reverse engineering in English language for those beginners who would like to learn to understand x86 (which accounts for almost all executable software in the world) and ARM code created by C/C++ compilers.

This book offers the reader both a detailed description of the LADS assembler and an efficient tool, a complete language with which to write other machine language programs. Every line in the program is described, all the subroutines are explained.
This book covers assembly language programming for the x86 family of microprocessors. The objective is to teach how to program in x86 assembly, as well as the basic architecture of x86 processor family. The book for readers at the intermediate level.
