Description :

Enter correct key and you willl see the flag, and this is result. Post flag to spoiler with wirite up how you decoded it.

You don't need to know correct key to get the flag:



Is that what you're looking for?


1) Run and dump from memory;
2) (optional) Fix imports with Scylla;
3) Load dump in IDA;
4) Find WndProc and see how WM_COMMAND is handled;
5) The key check is very convoluted but it all ends up here:

  ... lots of horrible operations with entered key ..

  strncpy(buffer, encryptedFlag, 25);
  for ( n = 0; n < 25; ++n )
    v3 = buffer[n];
    v4 = HIDWORD(v3) ^ HIDWORD(v20) ^ HIDWORD(v21) ^ HIDWORD(v22) ^ HIDWORD(v23) ^ HIDWORD(v11);
    v8[2 * n] = v3 ^ v20 ^ v21 ^ v22 ^ v23 ^ v11;
    v8[2 * n + 1] = v4;
    decryptedFlag[n] = v8[2 * n];

  // check last 2 bytes of decrypted flag
  result = 24;
  if ( decryptedFlag[24] == 'Z' )
    result = 23;
    if ( decryptedFlag[23] == 'C' )

Xor key for all bytes is the same. :wacko: 

You know encrypted flag. You know last 2 bytes of decrypted flag. So, you can deduce XOR key and decrypt the flag.

Hmm 😂 , Nice cold job kao! I know the XOR key is always the same. Next time there will be RSA for key checking. Very much appreciated that you described the procedure. See you next time 😎

I have an OLE DB provider includes 2 dlls. It is secured:

it calculates some check sum of machine and compare with sum encoded in license file provided by author.

By default the file contains something which allows to work full-functionally 14 trial days.

How to fix the dll  using way described above by kao ?
