Our own tools
Dear fellow crackers, Fravias and protectors, we need good and powerful tools to reverse the hell out of it, and we need to know how to use them effectively, and we need to know WHICH tools are out there, on this ever-expanding web of ours, where among tons of useless frills you can find some rare gems like this incredibly good south corean disassembler (with source code!). Moreover we need to develop (or caper) our own tools, because most of the 'tools of the trade' we use have been made more in order to check and repair buggy programs you already have the source code of than to reverse programs you don't even know which compiler has been used for :-)
If you are so deep inside my site, you already know what Fravias use. We use debuggers (like Softice), disassemblers (like IDA and Wdasm32), flow-analyzers (like Smartcheck), port, file, register and API interceptors (like the great sysnternals suite), windows identifyers (like Customizer) and so on and so on... of course, being respectful Fravias, the first approach when developing our own tools is simply to rip all the tricks we need out of the existing tools :-)
Good wizard +Mammon_ started this fundamental 'scouting' work: you'll be able to read here his first findings. Let's now continue:
There should be a couple of differences between "our tools" and the existing ones:
1) our tools will always be free and will be given out to anybody not only with their source code but also with a complete "history" of their development, that you'll also be able to follow on this site.
2) Our tools will be more 'target oriented' (if you know what I mean :-) than the existing ones for obvious reasons.
