How to Unpack ASProtect 1.23 RC4




ASProtect is a software protection system that encrypts and compresses executable files to prevent reverse engineering and cracking. It supports various versions of Windows and can protect both 32-bit and 64-bit applications. ASProtect also offers features such as anti-debugging, anti-dumping, code virtualization, and license management.


However, some people may want to unpack ASProtect protected files for various reasons, such as analyzing the code, modifying the functionality, or removing the protection. Unpacking ASProtect is not an easy task, as it involves dealing with complex encryption algorithms, stolen bytes, import elimination, and virtual machine obfuscation.

In this article, we will show you how to unpack ASProtect 1.23 RC4, which is one of the older versions of ASProtect that is still widely used by many software developers. We will use OllyDbg as our main debugger and ODbgScript as our scripting plugin. We will also use a script called "ASPack 2.xx Unpacker v0.1" that can automate some of the steps for us.


Step 1: Load the target file into OllyDbg




The first step is to load the target file into OllyDbg and run it until it reaches the OEP (Original Entry Point). The OEP is the address where the original code of the application starts executing after being decrypted by ASProtect. To find the OEP, we need to set some breakpoints and trace the execution flow.


One way to find the OEP is to look for a pattern of instructions that ASProtect uses to calculate the OEP from a constant value. The pattern looks like this:



MOV EBX,-13 ADD EBX,EBP SUB EBX,7000


We can use the "Find" command in OllyDbg to search for this pattern in the memory of the target file. Once we find it, we can set a breakpoint on the last instruction (SUB EBX,7000) and run the program. When the breakpoint is hit, we can see that EBX holds the value of the OEP.


Step 2: Dump the memory region containing the original code




The next step is to dump the memory region containing the original code of the application. To do this, we need to know the size of the original code and the base address of the memory region where it is located.


One way to find the size of the original code is to look for another pattern of instructions that ASProtect uses to calculate it from a constant value. The pattern looks like this:



MOV EAX,3F14 ADD EAX,DWORD PTR SS:[EBP+422]


We can use the "Find" command in OllyDbg to search for this pattern in the memory of the target file. Once we find it, we can set a breakpoint on the last instruction (ADD EAX,DWORD PTR SS:[EBP+422]) and run the program. When the breakpoint is hit, we can see that EAX holds the value of the size of the original code.


To find the base address of the memory region where the original code is located, we can use a simple trick. We can set a breakpoint on any instruction in the original code (for example, at the OEP) and run the program. When the breakpoint is hit, we can see that EIP holds the address of that instruction. We can then use OllyDbg's "Memory map" window to find out which memory region contains that address. The base address of that memory region is what we need.


Once we have both the size and the base address of the original code, we can use OllyDbg's "Dump" command to save that memory region into a file. We can name this file as "UN_" + original file name.


Step 3: Fix IAT, Reloc, TLS and PE header




The final step is to fix some important parts of the dumped file that are necessary for its proper execution. These parts are: IAT (Import Address Table), Reloc (Relocation Table), TLS (Thread Local Storage), and PE header.


IAT is a table that contains addresses of imported functions from external DLLs. ASProtect eliminates most of these addresses and replaces them with calls to its own virtual machine that resolves them at runtime. To fix IAT, we need to restore these addresses by tracing these calls and finding out which DLLs and functions they correspond to.


Reloc is a table that contains information about how to adjust addresses in the code when the application is loaded at a different base address than the one specified in the PE header. ASProtect encrypts this table and decrypts it at runtime. To fix Reloc, we need to find the decrypted table in the memory and copy it to the dumped file.


TLS is a table that contains information about how to initialize and access thread-local variables. ASProtect may also encrypt this table and decrypt it at runtime. To fix TLS, we need to find the decrypted table in the memory and copy it to the dumped file.


PE header is a structure that contains information about the format and characteristics of the executable file. ASProtect may modify some fields in this structure to make it harder to analyze or run the file. To fix PE header, we need to restore these fields to their original values or adjust them according to the changes we made in the previous steps.


Fixing these parts manually can be tedious and error-prone, so we can use a script that can automate some of the steps for us. The script we will use is called "ASPack 2.xx Unpacker v0.1" and it can be found on GitHub. This script can fix IAT, Reloc, TLS, and PE header for ASProtect 1.23 RC4 protected files. To use this script, we need to load it into ODbgScript plugin and run it on the dumped file. The script will ask us for some inputs and then perform the necessary modifications on the file.


Conclusion




In this article, we have shown you how to unpack ASProtect 1.23 RC4 protected files using OllyDbg and ODbgScript. We have explained the steps involved in finding the OEP, dumping the original code, and fixing IAT, Reloc, TLS, and PE header. We have also used a script that can automate some of the steps for us.


Unpacking ASProtect protected files can be useful for various purposes, such as analyzing the code, modifying the functionality, or removing the protection. However, it can also be illegal or unethical if done without permission from the software developer or owner. Therefore, we advise you to use this technique only for educational or legitimate purposes and respect the intellectual property rights of others. The article is already complete.
