Seeing as how there are 621 registered members and only a few post I thought I'd create this thread to help each other get to know one another. Obviously many like to remain anonymous so the amount of information you submit is up to you Everyone is encouraged to participate (moderators, admins, members, etc)
I like to drink beer, party, reverse, and learn new things. I attend university and enjoy correcting others on their english I also enjoy helping out those who are just starting out so if you got a question hit me up on irc or on this board. Make sure you've done your research first though
Nice idea thorpe, let me be the second to give a little info :
name : detten
age : 26
location : belgium
I like reversing, but like coding even more. I'm working in some company as a -supprise- coder I mainly deal with C++ and more specific audio/video coding.
I'm a linux user, so beware or I might convince you to drop that windows
I'm always in need for new things to learn, and in general thats exactly what computers requires.
Oh, and I like writting miztaikes, but no worry thorpe is on the other side of the globe to back me up _________________ Ignorance is bliss, knowledge is power
Hmm, what to say? I wanted to play Enter The Matrix when I bough computer 2-3 years ago and friend told me that I need to apply crack. "What the hell is crack?" That was my answer When I bough computer I didn't know even what copy-paste is, so I couldn't play game , he he. Anway, after couple games become boring and searching for cracks on net I found couple cracking tutorials and start reading. I admit - it got me.
Anway, Croatia, student, just get from army, now I must find some job, give couple examnes on coledge and then...who knows. Will see what life brings
I hope to get a job in security consulting when I finish school. I started reversing when I was about 12, mostly because I wanted to learn to mod games. I enjoy coding in Assembler, C/C++/C#, and Perl.
Yes, the age is right and you can live that long! I'm new to cracking, I mean debugging. I started out visiting the crack sites and getting other peoples cracks. Then I decided I wanted to learn to steal software on my own. Let that be a lesson to you kids: you're never too old to better yourself! I enjoy beer, old cars, young women and these new invention called computers. I'm a scientist (non-computers) by profession and I've recently changed to a job where I have a lot of free time. So I spend a lot of it trying to crack. I learned a little computer programming in grad school when I took a course in BASIC in 1974. I thought I would have to learn to program in order to learn to crack, but that really isn't the case.You just have to learn how to use and interpret the disassemblers. I've succeeded on one set of software and I'm working on my second. Speaking of which, could some of you look back at the question I posted on "program with 2 executables" A couple of you reponded but didn't understand the situation. I'm trying to crack a program which starts out in one executable, eventually gets to a ShellExecute command which leads to a sysenter command which launches the second executable. I know I need to patch the second executable in order to crack the program, but I can't get olly or w32dasm to run it. I can only run the second executable by launching it from the first exectable. I think I could crack it if only I could step through the program. How do I approach this? If you guys help me with this, I can explain what a slide rule is or an 8 track or even the hoola hoop.

It is easier than you'd think, just throw exe that's started from the shellexecute into PEiD. Now take the entrypoint down, and put the exe into your favorite hex editor. Now go to the entrypoint's address in the hex editor. Write down the first two bytes from the entrypoint and replace them with EB and FE. this will put the second exe into an infinite loop untill you intervene. Start your program and in a new window of ollydbg select 'File->attach'. Now select the exe that was started from the ShellExecute and change the first bytes from EB FE back to their original state. You are now free to debug the second exe.
I just figured out your post and did it. I'm now, hopefully, on my way to cracking the second executable. I'll let everyone know the outcome. I've heard about kids like you, but never actually met one. When I was 14 a lot of my classmates used to eat their crayons. They liked orange the best. I never ate my crayons, but didn't do much else except fantisize about the 14 year old girls that I could never have. If you're doing that while you're not cracking or even when you're cracking, rest assured, when you go to your 30th high school reunion, they'll all be pigs and you'll be glad they were'nt interested in you. But wait, I'm digressing mindlessly. I've been working on this crack for over a month and I'm really excited.
OK a slide rule is what your forefathers used to multiply and divide (they didn't always have calculators!) It was 2 rulers, one slid inside the other. Instead of numbers equally apart, they were on a log scale. Thus it worked by adding or subtracting logarithms. We had to be resourceful in those days! Thanks again for your help
