First, this article from Trustwave does an excellent job covering the topic thoroughly from a beginner's perspective (note: there are formatting errors throughout the article where it mashes two words together every two lines or so, but that aside, the content is good):


Next, combined with the aforementioned article, the Wikipedia page on the topic will help you flesh out the correct terminology to use for your future searches--things like "executable packing," "executable compression," etc.:


Those two resources should give you all you need to start building a solid understanding of the topic.
