Update on Mimic

June 19th, 2009

Hey, as most of the people interested in the Mimic saga already know, a new version is out.  A bunch of people have contacted me to ask if I would be posting about it, so I figured I’d post an explanation as to why I may or may not be. Kynox has done a minor coverage of the update available here.

I may or may not do a full and in-depth coverage for three reasons:

  1. I think it has been proven beyond doubt now that Mimic is indeed full of shit when it comes to their anti-anti-cheat code.
  2. I think they have been given enough handouts for now.
  3. Working on my new project is simply much more fun.

That being said, if I get bored I might take a look at the changes, but all I will be doing is documenting them, and pointing out whether it as a whole is still detectable. I will no longer be handing them free anti-warden ideas, they’re on their own now.

WoWMimic PvPAdvance v14

May 29th, 2009

Bored, so I took a look at the new version of WoWMimic PvPAdvance to see what they changed. Unfortunately v13 wouldn’t run on my PC,  so I don’t have anything to base it off, but when the next version comes out at least I will. I’m not surprised at all that there have been bans for this tool, its anti-detection is even worse than WOWMimic itselfs.

What they’re currently doing:

  1. Unlinking the module.

No. Seriously. That seems to be it.

They’re not hooking VirtualQuery (or any of its lower-level code paths), and they’re not even nulling out their PE header. This means that a Warden scan that is CURRENTLY IMPLEMENTED can be used to detect their module, all the Warden dev needs to do is add a new hash.

My guess is that with the bans from the previous version they made minor changes to their code, which changed the module hash at the point Warden was scanning, noticed they weren’t getting bans anymore, and assumed they fixed the problem. That, or they’re too lazy to fix it properly. Either way they’re idiots.

Epic fail. Quite disappointing really, that only took a minute or two to check and now I’m bored again.
