Suhdudes. I'm back with another challenge but it will be different because this will be designed for Windows! Another thing I will be doing is a kind of "series" with these crackmes where each successive one will get incrementally more difficult. I will also supply research material (to replace hints) to help give you newbies a push into the very expansive world of Windows. Hope you'll enjoy these and happy hacking!
