.NET Reversing Tips - Chapter 1


In this series of tutorials we will be targeting .net applications.

Hello every one, this is a new tutor for cracking .net assemblies, Today I have chosen to tell you about a commercial product called .NET reactor, The only difference between this software and all the other protection systems for .net executables is that it uses old packing techniques to protect your assembly and that's why I have chosen it.
