Reverse Engineering dot net source code

When I found this tool I was amazed and too shocked to see that my software can be easily decompiled and easily read without much effort. It's so frustrating actually. You put so much effort and brainstorm to develop a logic and put it into a piece of application and safeguard your code in some place so that no one can get their hands on it. But this tool did it.
It's a great tool if you think in a cracker's and hacker's way.
But if you think the other way it's a piece of shit that you want to dump it forever.

I wanted it too. But later I learnt about a way to obfuscate my code. At least Microsoft provided me with some way to hide my logic in a way that it can be hard for some novice cracker to decompile it easily and make me look like a fool. It was a sigh of relief actually.

In my next article I will try to compile something about obfuscating in dot net. Please visit soon.

Remove connection limit in winxp

Many of us must have experienced the problem of connection limit in windows xp. Windows xp pops up with some message saying that the connection limit is exceeding or something like that. Normally by default winxp allows 10 connections per second. So the 11th connection to the computer where windows xp has been installed will be denied. According to microsoft this limit has been imposed in order to prevent rapid spreading of worms so that a worm may affect only 10 computers at a time. Don't understand why they did that, but still it can impose certain limitations to the worms from affecting so many computers at a time.

This patch here can be useful to change the limit of connections in win xp.

usb device not recognized

Some day ago I had a problem with my windows xp. When I plugged in my pendrive it showed unrecognized device or something like that. I had the same problem previously. I simply formatted the os and reinstalled it. It solved my problem. But this time without having to format i simply unplugged my power cables and my usb port cables from motherboard. But make sure you know how to plug it in back.

Just wanted to share it with you guys.

You can download the file and rename the filename with the name of your exe and placing the file where your executable exists. Then automatically windows enable xp theme for that application. Remember the name of the manifest file should consist of manifest as extension. for eg. your_app_name.exe.manifest
