My research:

- The unpackme uses the 'RC4Str' function to decrypt base64 strings to a readable format.

- The unpackme uses the 'RC4' function to decrypt "ProtectionDll.dll", which actually is the protected file

- The password used in this unpackme is "Exodious"

1) The unpackme goes to the server address "http://totalviruscheck.com/SoftwareProtection/insert.php?HWID=" to do a license check. This check is easily bypassed with a small php script: http://codepad.org/0Gb7UFAD (just redirect totalviruscheck.com to

2) The data returned from the server is put through the 'CleanHwid' function. This function takes the string directly after "<body>". This data is uppercased and compared with the uppercased HWID to pass the license check.

3) The "ProtectionDll.dll" is decrypted using the RC4 function.

4) OEP and the HWID are sent to the server: "?HWID2=[Hwid]]http://totalviruscheck.com/SoftwareProtection/insert.php?OEP=[buildNumber]?HWID2=[Hwid]"

5) OEP Bytes in hex format are retrieved from the server (you cannot know the OEP bytes in this way, smart but with one valid license you're screwed)

6) OEP Bytes are written to memory and file is executed in memory

Luckily this is VB5 so it's quite easy to retrieve the OEP bytes (They match with the included 'invoke.exe', which is embedded in the resources)

I attached my dumps, php scripts and used tools(+source), I liked the challenge :)

@Exodious: plz include a valid license with your unpackme. It should also be hard when you have a valid license, without one I cannot test certain features, especially when you store RC4 keys on the server.
