I have released the BIOS Disassembly Ninjutsu Uncovered (1st Edition) [Unedited] PDF in GitHub. You can clone it from this URL: https://github.com/pinczakko/BIOS-Disassembly-Ninjutsu-Uncovered.git or download the zip https://github.com/pinczakko/BIOS-Disassembly-Ninjutsu-Uncovered/archive/master.zip for free. Well, the (copy) rights have expired and I guess lot's of people look forward to it. I don't have enough bandwidth to host it. If somebody wants to host it, please do so but please notify me via email.
Anyway, mind you that this is the unedited version, not the shipping version. You might find it a little rough here and there, but the manuscript is complete. If you remember, the English version of the book is 450 pages, but the Russian version is more than 600 pages. I haven't had time to check what was missing in the English edition compared to the Russian edition.
There are two alternative places to download the book at present (but be advised to try downloading from GitHub first in order not to burden the other two sites):
- The Rebels Haven forum: http://www.lejabeach.com/sisubb/BIOS_Disassembly_Ninjutsu_Uncovered.pdf. Thanks goes to Polygon who have provided the bandwidth to host the book
- Teddy Rogers' tuts4you: http://tuts4you.com/download.php?view.3296. Thanks goes to Teddy Rogers who have provided the bandwidth to host the book
PS: I have created a new group over at linkedin, i.e. "BIOS/UEFI Vulnerability and Reverse Engineering" if you want to discuss a thing or two.
BIOS Disassembly Ninjutsu Uncovered Errata:
1. The address aliasing mentioned in Chapter 4 section 4.1.1 page 4 (the paging messed-up in the PDF) should cover both E-segment and F-Segment (E_0000h-F_FFFFh), not just the last 64-KB segment. Somebody used a sort of CPU logic analyzer to confirm this fact.
2. Chapter 9 section 9.2: The Flash_n_burn utility mentioned there is now named flashrom and become a quite independent part of the Coreboot (previously LinuxBIOS) project. See: http://flashrom.org/Flashrom
Anyway, if you found another errata please post it below. Thanks.
