This is my first crackme and I don't wanted to make't extremily difficult, but for begginer eyes will look like that, take care about the code and beware the antidebugging tricks!,

This crackme exposes some new tricks for avoiding disassembling and debugging, but don't panic! This crackme is somewhat a PoC, and some "features" are just to aware you and make you take care.

The code has not been optimized, so functions will be longer to read, It is a dynamically linked binary with -fPIC.

What you have to do is to get the correct password when running the unpatched crackme directly from the shell.

No restrictions/rules for this crackme.

So have fun! :)
