That is a new one. But is is only barely beta. He is years behind Olly. That has been the case with linux since 2003.

If not private, what did you Reverse Engineer?

Is it possible to reverse engineer a full OS like Windows in Ollydebug?

Partially. You can step into dll's and windows drivers. Perhaps these latest Olly's can do even more.

Hey!

Backtrack is a very popular penetration testing distro. You should have some faith

There are two types hackers and crackers.

So? Why does that mean you cannot RE with Backtrack?

That I do not know. Olly is like one of the M's, it takes a long time to learn well. It was my favorite tool.

You know what a hacker is. A cracker is a guy who reverse engineers software to make it do what he wants.

No. I knew it in another way:

Hacker - One who breaks in to access data, reverse engineers, etc to play pranks and to test his skills with no bad intentions

Cracker - One who does the same but out of bad intentions from the heart like greed, rage

That is not a complete definition.

In the computer security context, a hacker is someone who seeks and exploits weaknesses in a computer system or computer network. Hackers may be motivated by a multitude of reasons, such as profit, protest, or challenge
