The purpose of the thread is not to rub anything on anyone's face. I don't want to improve their security neither, it's just a fact that when someone finds a breach, you need to fix it and in order to fix the problem you have to study the problem leading to a better software as a whole.
I just think that having threads like that are very important and a lot of people are interested in them.

But then again, that's all only theory.
In a perfect world, a person who cracks software does not brag about it but rather just silently informs the developer in question about it with all possible information on how the person achieved it as well as possible solutions to prevent further cracks.
But well, that does not happen. After all, people crack software, go all nuts and brag about how pr0 they are for editing their host file or spoofing the packets sent and received.
All this makes us not willing to provide more attention to those bragging cr4ck0rs.
If you crack software and feel the need to release it - Go for it. We have no problem with that and my personal opinion on this is simply not important.
But if the original author asks us to remove it, we'll do so.
In the end, security of your software in the terms I described earlier has pretty much nothing to do with the quality of the software in terms of usability, performance, anti-detection, ..
Okay, guess that's it.
It's a shame this happens, I can't stop but thinking what they could do if they worked together then.
Well, thanks for making it as clear as possible.
