View Full Version : unknown crypter/packer

February 1st, 2002, 12:24

recently, i've tried to crack a proggy called PrintPoint 4.5 (h**p://w*w.printpoint.com/demo/downloads/PrintPoint_4.5_Setup.exe). This piece of software is protected only by a sn, very strange for a 4000 usd appz. My problem is that this program is packed with an unknown packer (no file analyzer was able to give me an info regarding the packer/crypter used). Among other usual things, the PE header contain a section called "WINTH_TE". I've tried also manual unpacking, but since i've no access to a Win9x system, the options are limited. Any ideea of the packer/crypter used? Maybe someone else saw this "WINTH_TE" section in other programs.

thx a lot

Hello Rip !

The reason why no file analyzer can tell you which packer is used is that NO packer is used. I just checked the main .EXE and looked at a normal Win32-PE file with no special protection in it. The section "WINTH_TE" is a normal section containing code too. The OEP is located in the ".code" section and has also no special meaning.

It is usual that some programs have more than one code segment. Sometimes you have "AUTO"/"CODE", sometimes ".code"/".code1", so why not ".code"/"WINTH_TE"? I don't know the reason why, but it may be that the program's authors link some compiler incompatible code with the program.
