Impossible Disassembly

Created the Monday 18 March 2019. Updated 7 months, 2 weeks ago.

Impossible disassembly is an anti-disassembling technique that involves inserting data bytes after a conditional jump instruction in order to prevent the real instruction that follows from being disassembled. This technique takes advantage of a basic assumption in disassembly, which states that one byte is only interpreted in the context of one instruction. By inserting a byte that is the opcode for a multibyte instruction, the disassembler will be unable to correctly interpret the next instruction, and will therefore generate incorrect disassembly output.
