It seems that the author of RkUnhooker (you know, that guy named EP_X0FF) got very upset about my comments and first he wrote a comment to my blog – which I published a little late and I apologize for it. Then he got into personal mode and made a threatening post on his forum.
My thought are: if I deface my own site, do I get the source code? 😀 On a more serious note: after this incident would you consider running his program on your computer? Consider this: by running RkUnhooker you give somebody who clearly has anger management problems and sees violence as a viable response system wide access (because his soft needs Admin level privileges to be able to load the driver)! I looked through the current version of the software and it doesn’t contain any malicious code – and no, PECompact doesn’t protect your program from reverse engeneering, and packing your executable is a bad idea in itself – but this may change in the future judging his posts (the last post says in Russian:
we are already working on it). You should make sure that you are not part of the solution and avoid his software.
The last install kit which I checked had a size of 147611 bytes, a MD5 of f79f711bd54bfc9f297eeefee69f8705 and a SHA1 of ccb2558366cb076451fe6f58c4c5081eae52f168. Do not run anything from him if possible!
