Recommended Posts

Not too much to say about but let the following be a storyline of the challenge:


 


"This program is believed to be used to check validity of superheroes' secret passwords."


 


Your objective is to analyze the program and find the secret passswords.


 


It's up to you if you want to submit your answer here or via PM to me.


It will be up for a week then I will post my detailed solving method.


 


Enjoy it!

Hint:

Only common english words are used. Use a dictionary file to find the intended words.
The basic one from BackTrack 5 works: /pentest/passwords/wordlists/darkc0de.lst

My best guess is below. Some things still don't add up, though.

 

If there's any problem, you could send me an PM and explain your steps. I will help you if you think you missed things. I'm curious about your way of passing the anti debug part. Congratulations, anyway!

 

Edit: to be sure i have not sent you/others on wrong path. your solutions is correct :)

I'll wait for you "detailed solving method" - maybe after that I'll comment on how I got around anti-debug. :)


 


As for problems - on my computers (Xeon W3550 with 64bit Win7 and i5-2500K with 32bit XP) the correct answer won't show the messagebox. In VMWare it works correctly.


My best guess is that you have a race condition somewhere in the code.

@GIV: try to reverse any game based on Unreal 3 engine. Or wait until IDA finishes analysis of 10MB+ executable. You'll feel the need then. ;)


@Ownage: any chance to see your "official solution"? :)
