How to protect against Rohitab API Monitor2

Post by pauly89 » Tue May 26, 2020 12:51 pm

Hello
I was informed that there is a cracking tool called Rohitab API Monitor2.
They claimed that they could be used to crack copy protected software.
Here is their step by step cracking guide:

While there is an API Monitor Tutorial: Monitoring your first application :

Please advise how to use Enigma to protect against this tool.
If you wish to reply with confidential counter measures, please then send it to
my email address. Thanks

Hi Paul,

The API monitor can give the information for cracker what system API are used and this would be helpful for cracking, but I doubt we need to somehow protect application against using of such tool.
System API functions can be well hooked through the debugger also, so apart of this tool there is enough large number of tools and techniques that do the same.
If cracker can't understand the code of protected application (which is a goal of Enigma Protector), system API called from this code do not provide much information about functionality of protected code.
