Translation Details

  • Igor Zhirkov


In this chapter we are going to revisit the notion of calling convention to deepen our understanding and work through translation details. This process requires both understanding program functioning on the assembly level and a certain degree of familiarity with C. We are also going to review some classic low-level security vulnerabilities that might be opened by a careless programmer. Understanding these low-level translation details is sometimes crucial for eradicating very subtle bugs that do not reveal themselves at every execution.
