Reverse Engineering Mentoring

I started mentoring someone on Reverse Engineering. We use a Wiki to communicate, feel free to join as a mentor or mentee.


  1. Any thoughts on recovering Yahoo webmail? It seems like the sent email messages are somehow obfuscated in the java. Currently I am having problems with it using Encase 6. It appears that they have made changes in their java code. I found your Spidermonkey and thought that this might be a help.

  4. We can try, you can start. But as I said to other persons:

    “But since it’s mentoring and not teaching, the main work is supposed
    to be done by the mentee, not the mentor. And that’s probably why
    nobody picks up where I left off. 😉
    I produced a couple of pages to get people started, but once they
    completed these, they are supposed to produce the new pages for the
    lessons under the guidance of the mentors.”

  8. Thank you for the project. Will probably create some new Lessons. Reverse engineering of PE is quite interesting, sadly its rarely useful in Industry.

  10. @Rinat Not actively for the moment, not enough time. But you can always start the exercises and see how it goes.
