    If you’re familiar with reverse engineering software, you may have stumbled upon the magic world of anti-debugging and obfuscation. Anti-debugging protection is often built into software that is a likely target for reverse engineering, as a tactic to hamper any efforts in that area. Many techniques exist to avoid proper functioning of a (software-based) debugger,…
