Recently, I decided to put my reversing skills to a test by solving some of the public crackmes and writing down my solutions. This is the first of many to come.
For work, I do some very basic Android, TEE, RASP and IoT reversing, but most of those tasks are too shallow and repetitive. You can’t get much depth when reversing is an “if there’s time to waste” part of an engagement with overall length of a week and bottomless scope, so this series is about a monkey learning to dive deeper.
I decided to source my first batch of challenges from Crackmes.One. First challenge is of difficulty level 1 and is targeting ARM/Linux.
