Overlays and Extra Data

Teddy Rogers

About This File

An overlay (aka extra-data) is simply data appended to the physical image of a Portable Executable. Take a PE, append stuff to the end without adjusting the header, and it has an overlay. This data area is not defined as part of the image by the PE header and therefore isn't part of the virtual image of the loaded PE.
