What is Hooking?


    About this video

    Hooking is a technique that is used to intercept calls to a function of an application and replace it with a script or code that changes the behavior. This technique is often used to achieve some sort of progress in reverse engineering, usually bypassing some form of check or step in the application logic.

    In this video, a Guardquare engineer explains how hooking attacks work through the framework of inline hooking and indirection hooking.
