IDA Pro (short for Interactive DisAssembler Professional) is an excellent and extremely powerful decompiler with high efficiency and good interactivity from Belgium. It’s also the best static decompiler at present (we can call it the world’s top-level). Many programmers and more crackers use it and even can’t do without it.

What AppNee wants to emphasize is: on the one hand, as a matter of fact, IDA Pro has become the standard tool for analyzing malicious codes, which also make itself be an important method in the study field of software cracking rapidly. Its pros are more perfect disassembly and deeper analysis than similar tools. Meanwhile, its cons are also clear – IDA is really not easy to use, most of time, you have to start it with some special tutorials (the official tutorials are recommended) or books (The IDA Pro Book is recommended, AppNee will release it as soon); on the other hand, IDA Pro is an indispensable edge tool for software crackers. In short, as an interactive, programmable, extensible and multiple-processor supported analyzing program on Windows or Linux platform, IDA Pro has long been recognized as the best disassembly tool in the software decoding/cracking field.

As the world’s top disassembly tool, IDA Pro was obviously better than W32DASM from France (such as more professional UI, more options, or more advanced features), so that today you can easily download its full version from the Internet. But of course, anyway, in fact, IDA has a lot of same function with W32DASM: quickly reach the designated code position; check the JMP command position used to jump to some specified location; check the reference string; save static assembly, etc.

Eventually, you want to be a professional cracker? Then remember to master one tool – IDA Pro or OllyDbg and one thing – keep learning and trying. That’s all.
