Title: NeatPad 2.0
all, it's very flexible and powerful text editor. Why would you need another
text editor? Because NeatPad has everything you could possibly want at your
fingertips to design a web page!
It was created for editing text, or ASCII, files. These files contain no images or special formatting, just like the content of a .html file.
has some awesome features, which include:
Built-in FTP Uploader for your web files (images and html files)
Program Launcher, to keep all your important programs at your fingertips
HTML Highlight, which turns HTML tags red so they stand out
Explorer-looking file tree, for quickly switching between files
"View in Browser", a feature that saves the HTML document
you're working on and shows it to you on a web page
Favorites Folder for files you regularly access
Built-in Notebook that allows you to keep notes to yourself while working
on a project
Multiple File Replace, which makes changes to an entire group of files
URL Catcher, which allows you to surf and create a web page of the sites
you really like
Unlimited File Size; no more "this file is too big for notepad to
Quick insert tags, for the HTML tags you use the most
And, most importantly, it's SMALL and FAST! There is no pause to wait
until a file is opened!
- And more...
NeatPad will quickly become your Notepad replacement, as you begin to
fall in love with its quick-access features. Also, you can easily associate
NotePad with different file types.
NeatPad's motto is "what you want is what you get." This is
because the text remains just as you type it. NeatPad doesn't add any of its own
special formatting to your text. Other HTML editors, such as FrontPage, are
"what you see is what you get," since they might make your web page,
but they add a whole bunch of HTML code to the document that it doesn't even
need. Other HTML editors can also cause counters, banners, etc. to not work.
Perhaps you've had these problems yourself. This won't happen to you if you
write the code yourself using NeatPad!
Half a brain
we start, It has to be said that the protection on this program is awful! It
took all of 20 seconds to find the
real serial, hence the shortness of this tutorial.
first we need to find where we enter our registration code that we have
purchased from the authors! So, start-up the program, and we instantly see that
it isn’t in our usual help menu. If we have a look around, we will find it in
our File/Preferences option.
The next thing you should notice, is that your username is already there, and cannot be changed. (It uses the username that you give when you installed windows!).
to the job in hand, finding our real serial! Enter any old serial number into
the registration box, and before you hit OK, bring up your debugger window. As
usual we will be setting our breakpoint on the HMEMCPY function. So, in our
debugger window we set the breakpoint by typing;
will cause the program to break when something is written to memory. Now, close
your debugger window (you should know how to do this by now!), and hit the ok
button on our registration box. Bang! Up pops our debugger window. So firstly
clear all breakpoints that have been set by typing bc ( or bc* if your using
Softice ), and you will notice that the breakpoint we set on hmemcpy has broken
the program at KernelHmemcpy. We don’t want to be here, so we need to trace
through the Kernel, User, and Kernel32 code before we are inside our program
code. Trace through the code, using F10, until you get to the following;
Move our fake serial into EAX
Move the real
serial into EDX
D EAX to display fake serial.
serial against fake serial
D EDX to see real serial.
If serials are
different, jump to “Bad Cracker”, if same carry on to “Good Boy”
So, you should have written down the values displayed when we dumped the contents of the EDX register to the screen, and now is the moment of truth. Close down your debugger, and enter the values that you wrote down a few seconds earlier into the registration box, which in my case is;
Right! Hit the OK button, and what do we see?
YES!! Our job is done! If we do as asked, and restart the program, and go back to the Files/Preferences section where we entered our registration information, we now see the following;
told you the protection on this program was terrible!!
