I have a simple function which looks like that:

keyAlphabet = [-1, 16, 32, 127, 61, -32, -31, 43, 0, 88, 2, 5, 7, 112, 64, 69, 96]
key = ??? # only keyAlphabet values
p = 0x1337
for i in key:

Finally p should be 0xfd0970e7.

I've tried to subtract 0x31337 from the final result and search dividers of that value from the keyAlphabet (I've done that operation 8 times and after that multiple dividers came out, 0x12ef1e can be divided with 2,7 and 61), but because of negative values (specially -1) I'm not sure where should I change the sign. As a result I'm not able to find the key which will proceed values from 0x1337 into 0xfd0970e7.

  • I assume original code is in assembly. Care to share that? Nuances might be lost in translation – NirIzr Aug 22 '16 at 16:05
  • @NirIzr here's the binary I've disassembled github.com/wapiflapi/exrs/blob/master/reverse/r9 – desu Aug 22 '16 at 18:07
  • @NirIzr and here's pseudo-code pastebin.com/3NkB3h6S. I runned this binary with chars possible to pass as argument and received this key alphabet – desu Aug 22 '16 at 18:10
  • pseudocode shows every iteration in the last loop (the one you pasted python code for) has a different key. it iterates all possible values. i think that if keyAlphabet is actually var_18, you should have something like keyAlphabet.reverse() ; for key in keyAlphabet: – NirIzr Aug 22 '16 at 23:29

    @mayahustle unless random() is seeded with the same seed on every execution ;) – NirIzr Aug 24 '16 at 8:19
