HITB 2011 CTF – Reversing Vectored Exception Handling (VEH)


Today we will have a look at a CTF binary from HITB pre qualifications CTF 2011:


This is an interesting binary to reverse because Vectored Exception Handling (VEH) was used in the challenge. As this was new to me, I documented how it works and wanted to share a short reversing write-up of the binary.

You can download the binary (windows_challenge.exe) here


Thanks to skier_ and the HITB crew for generating such an awesome CTF binary.

Come along………..and enjoy!
