I just noticed that I haven’t published a full-length post for almost 2 months already. sad Let me assure you, this blog is not dead, I just had a peaceful Christmas vacation. Here’s what else is new..
I’m still having fun writing this blog. So, I’ve renewed the domain for one more year. Since I’m using a free shared hosting, HTTPS is not an option. But if you would really like to see that (or any other improvements to the site), please let me know in the comments.
As you probably have noticed, this blog is running on WordPress. And since my webhost has really tough restrictions on what can be done with shared hosting accounts, automatic update of WordPress is not possible. So, I updated the engine manually to the latest version 4.7.1.
Last night there was some short outage but it was more likely caused by maintenance on the webhost. But please do let me know if you notice any issues with the site!
Improved Enigma Virtual Box unpacker
One of the most requested features for Enigma Virtual Box unpacker was support for large files. I had to rewrite quite a lot of stuff to make it happen but now it works fine for files up to 4GB (and possibly more). wink It’s finished but I need to test the unpacker properly before making it public.
Improved Molebox unpacker
Again, one of the most requested features is to support huge files (500MB+). Since the original unpacker was written in 2009, compiled only with Delphi 4 and was intended to unpack regular EXE files, I had to rewrite pretty much everything from scratch – so I’m happy to say that it’s 90% done. I should be able to wrap it up in a few weeks and then make it public.
Blog post about video-to-exe DRM protections
Every once in a while someone in Tuts4You asks about video-to-exe or pdf-to-exe “protections”. Every single one I’ve seen so far has been just a snake oil. In the article I’ll document the methods used by these “protections” to encrypt video/PDF and prevent user from extracting original file out of EXE. You won’t believe how much time and effort goes into preparing a single technical blog post – so don’t expect it to be finished any time soon. wink
Have fun and talk to you all later!
