The Antivirus Hacker's Handbook guides you through the process of reverse engineering antivirus software. You explore how to detect and exploit vulnerabilities that can be leveraged to improve future software design, protect your network, and anticipate attacks that may sneak through your antivirus' line of defense. You'll begin building your knowledge by diving into the reverse engineering process, which details how to start from a finished antivirus software program and work your way back through its development using the functions and other key elements of the software. Next, you leverage your new knowledge about software development to evade, attack, and exploit antivirus software—all of which can help you strengthen your network and protect your data.
While not all viruses are damaging, understanding how to better protect your computer against them can help you maintain the integrity of your network. Discover how to reverse engineer your antivirus software Explore methods of antivirus software evasion Consider different ways to attack and exploit antivirus software Understand the current state of the antivirus software market, and get recommendations for users and vendors who are leveraging this software
The Antivirus Hacker's Handbook is the essential reference for software reverse engineers, penetration testers, security researchers, exploit writers, antivirus vendors, and software engineers who want to understand how to leverage current antivirus software to improve future applications.
Elias felt he needed to write The Feasts of Memory in order to learn about himself. At the age of 29, he dramatized how a young Greek-American growing up on the edge of a golf-course in Westchester County could discover a spiritual connection to a barren island in the south Aegean Sea.
The Feasts of Memory is Elias’ narrative recreation on life on the island of Kasos, when both his grandfathers were sea-captains, and both his grandmothers were knobbly-handed island women who held house and home together while the men were away at sea.
The book captures the vivid and often eccentric characters and customs that ran through the family’s history, while it dramatizes the role of two of its most dominant women. The book is a stimulating combination of Mediterranean travelogue and the author’s autobiography as a ship owner and writer, seen through a collection of stories with wider historic and anthropological overtones. It creates a living picture of life in a Greek shipping family as it existed in the early twentieth century.
The book brings to life a world of ancient traditions and colorful customs that will inspire anyone wishing to discover Greece. It captures the nostalgia and excitement that accompany one’s search for origins as a key to one’s identity and meaning in life.
This edition includes a preface by the author and an expanded chapter with material about his late beloved cousin Michael Kulukundis, both written in 2013 specifically for this edition.
Singular integrals were known to only a few specialists when Stein's book was first published. Over time, however, the book has inspired a whole generation of researchers to apply its methods to a broad range of problems in many disciplines, including engineering, biology, and finance.
Stein has received numerous awards for his research, including the Wolf Prize of Israel, the Steele Prize, and the National Medal of Science. He has published eight books with Princeton, including Real Analysis in 2005.
