The job is to create a code that protects an application against cracking, debugging etc. The code is a single function that checks whether any known cracking tool is running (e.g. SoftICE, Ollydbg etc). The checks are to be made using a variety of different detection methods and tricks to make it more difficult for the software cracker to disable the checks. The code must use many different methods to try to detect the cracking tools. The code must also check using numerous different methods the size of itself (i.e. the size of the application itself) to detect if the size has been changed. (The application is packed with UPX compressor, so if anyone attempts to uncompress it the application should notice it). The code must be written in Delphi but inline assembly can also be used. The code cannot be written fully in assembly.
