This simple ASM program is designed to show you some of the syntax, and get you accustomed to how the code is written.

This example prints a character to the screen

An assembler is required to turn this into an executable application. Look here for details of downloading assemblers

.CODE

MOV AH,2 ;COMMAND TO PRINT CHAR
MOV DL,'J' ; CHARACTER TO PRINT
INT 21h ;INTERRUPT TO PRINT CHAR
INT20h ; RETURN SAFELY TO DOS

Horrible?
The comments tell you exactly whats going on... if you already understand whats going on :/ Even then, they are still vague.

This program makes use the the DOS service dispatcher which is called by making a software interrupt to vector 0x21. The particular service is called "Display Character" which is service 0x02. This is why AH is loaded with 2. The Print Character service also expects the character to be loaded in DL. Interrupt vector 0x20 is one of several ways to return control back to the program.

A lot could be said alone on software interrupts and the interrupt vector table before even getting into the particular services the DOS service dispatcher.

Learning assembly isnt about memorizing code snippits and instructions, its about memory addressing and memory management.

Geek Toolbar on Mon 13th Nov 8am
This a very simple and small toolbar I wrote in my spare time. I use the same set of tools very often and I find it very annoying to look for them in the start menu, on the desktop or in explorer. http://www.osix.net/modules/folder/index .php?tid=134

BinScan and Alternate Data Stream on Thu 27th Jul 9am
BinScan I created this tool to quickly identify modifications in the PE, use of a TLS callback and Alternate Data Streams. -> Some modifications done in the PE structure of an executable can prevent debuggers or other tools to open the executable.

Now that the blog is online, I'll be able to share two or three tools I wrote. The first one I'd like to share is WMF Creator. I already put a link in the comments of my article: Wmf Exploit but I thought it would look nicer here. This tool will tak

You can test your assembly knowledge by taking this test. It starts out relatively easy, but gets progressively hards very quickly! If you know assembly, or just want to see what you DONT know about assembly, this test is for you. A more advanced assembly
