Gray Hat Python

Python is fast becoming the programming language of choice for hackers, reverse engineers, and software testers because it’s easy to write quickly and has the low-level support and libraries that make hackers happy. But until now, there has been no book explaining how to use Python for security-related tasks. Programmers had to dig through forum posts and man pages, endlessly tweaking their own code to get everything working. Not anymore.

Gray Hat Python (No Starch Press, April 2009, 216 pp, $39.95, ISBN 9781593271923) explains the theory behind Python-based debuggers, trojans, fuzzers, and emulators. In addition, readers get hands-on advice for using PyDbg, Immunity Debugger, Sulley, IDAPython, and PyEmu. Security researcher and author Justin Seitz shows readers how to push these security tools to their limits¡Xand how to build new ones when the pre-built tools won’t cut it.
