This tutorial will describe manually unpacking ExeShield 3.7 protector.
1. Introduction words
Hi and welcome to a new unpacking tutorial! This time we will have a very easy job.
ExeShield is maybe the easiest protector that I have seen and that includes freeware protectors too. It supports dongle(hardware key) protection but this tutorial won't discuss about that part, only software protection. And that software protection is very weak. Also notice that if you scan protected file with PEiD, you will get incorrect scan result "PECompact 2.x -> Jeremy Collake". Don't be surprised, a lot of protectors today have fake first bytes in order to confuse non-experienced crackers. Or maybe ExeShield just uses PECompact for compression.
This tutorial will cover unpacking of MoleBoxPro 2.2.5 packer. This packer is particulary interesting because it supports packing an application with all its data files (dll's , etc..) into a single executable file.
