My first crackme. Lot of xor's are used inside.

To crack this, you have to set up a license file with name in a first line and serial in second line. Serial is created from many xor's and a little checksum is also computed.

As an addition there is a little trick - exec counts time from start till final check and if the elpased time is larger than 5 secs, it breaks. Dunno if it'll work against someone, but hope its a variety.

Hey dude,
i think ive just discovered a little bug (or im too dumb to understand whats going on :P):
your >little checksum< function does some calculation by
reading the serial -> you read it like this:
BUT your serial mask looks like this
"XXXX-XXXX-XXXX-XXXX-" -> what are you trying to read @ esi+14..17 ?

best regards :)

I suck at asm, so I cant tell what is happening inside compiled program. As far as I tested this, it should be ok.
Send me a PM if you want a serial generated for you!

At 14..17 there should be checksum, serial is:
and YYYY stands for checksum
It's not a bug. It is a feature! :D
