#1386 Guide/Bibliography/Documentation for SWF reverse engineering
Author: user muhbytes

State: new Help

Does an authoritative introduction to reversing SWFs exist? Should one be written? Does anyone keep any kind of bibliography of existing work? I would have found some sort of central starting knowledgebase very helpful in my adventures so far.
Naturally the AVM2 overview and the SWF specification would be the basis for anyone serious I guess? For someone not intimately familiar with Adobe and Actionscript, I don't know how/where to find the possibly relevant adobe documentation that I need, not everything is of the same importance.
