Unpack , Pack


Recommended Posts

Packers are always fairly easy to unpack and for (nearly) every packer there already exists an unpacker. They mostly differ in compress ratio and what they support. Examples: UPX, FSG, PECompact....


A combination of Packer+Protector however is much more powerful if you also want to protect the packed target against unpacking. Example: VmProtect, Armadillo, Asprotect, etc...


So depending on what exactly you want to achieve there are different recommendations one could give. Please be more precise if you need more help

You need to specify what you're trying to achieve, small exe size- PECompact, ASPack,UPX, and others are recommended. If you want a protector then VMprotect, Themida and ASPotect are pretty good (although how they are implemented can drastically change their "strength"). I wouldn't bother with Armadillo as it hasn't changed in 6+ versions, adds too much excess protector code and is easily defeated. Hope that helps
