What are some methods to reverse a ex5 file, for metatrader 5? I would like to understand how people crack ex5 files and make them for use. Any ideas of reverse engineering tools for this scenario?
.ex5 binaries are a custom format designed to run inside MetaTrader's platform. I assume most of the information on these is contained in
metaeditor.exe, the platform's cross-version IDE and compiler.
Just recently I've tried to analyze MetaEditor out of curiosity - the IDE and compiler are statically obfuscated and have anti-debugging measures employed.
If you like challenges though, probably the first step for you would be attaching the process to a debugger. Here's a little gist with my attempt that you can start with.
