Might be an interesting read.

I hate software that refuses to load just because softice is *installed* on your machine, sigh. (or does skype only balk when it's loaded? can't remember. Annoying nonetheless Smile)

btw, my "boss" in work told that this protection isn't that strong... they could buy much better commercial protection, instead of creating their own.

Standard run-of-the-mill softice detection is easily circumvented, even with public tools. As for protection, what do they need it for? Isn't skype free? If they're afraid of people RE'ing their code, well whatever - memory dumps Smile

Hmm, looking at the article I don't know what to do - respect other Estonian coders for making it this secure - or give a slap to their heads, because the obfuscation they caused in their code Very Happy

Respect for getting so much money for it definately, but another slap that they EVER sold it. Sad
Would have been something like NOKIA to Finland. The eternal saga continues...

Madis, I thought Skype was Danish?

The obfuscation etc. seems relatively interesting...

And it's scary that there's nasty exploits for it.
