Description

If you want to get started quickly on building rich gui-based crackmes using drag and drop method the easy way, then this course is for you. You will learn how to use Embarcadero C++ Builder (Free Community Edition) to create form-based apps much like Visual Basic, where you drag and drop buttons, input boxes, labels etc onto forms. A CrackMe is a small program designed to test a programmer’s reverse engineering skills.

You will also learn C++ programming. After learning the basic skills taught in this course, you will be able to create any type of crackme you can imagine.  Publish them on crackmes websites or share with your friends, or, put up on youtube, etc. Your limit is your imagination!

This course is also ideal for Software Developers who want to learn how to protect their software from being reversed. They can rapidly create crackmes to test out new ideas and if it works implement the ideas in their real software. The CrackMe’s you build are compiled into native exe files and are suitable for practising reverse engineering using x64dbg or any windows reversing tools you prefer.

This course covers:

  1. Installing C++ Builder
  2. Building Form Based Apps
  3. Using Forms, Labels and Buttons
  4. Using Edits boxes and Message Boxes
  5. Use Strings and Integers
  6. Build crackme’s
  7. Simulate serial keys licensing
  8. Simulate trial expiration
  9. Simulate functionality limits
  10. Simulate time
  11. Simulate server activation
  12. Understanding Trial Period software
  13. Understanding Software Registration process
  14. C++ Programming
  15. Build standalone programs
  16. Using Forms, Buttons, Textboxes, MessageBoxes
  17. Creating Auto-generating Serial CrackMe’s
  18. Nag screens CrackMe’s
  19. Implementing Anti-Debugger Protection
  20. Build a Client-Server Activation System CrackMe
  21. and more…

Who this course is for:

  1. Anyone interested to create their own crackme’s for practising Reverse Engineering or CTF (Capture The Flag) Challenges
  2. Programmers who want to get started in Reverse Engineering but do not have any targets to practice on
