    Hey, I use Visual Studio 2008 and I could write tons of blackhat apps in it if I knew blackhat concepts better...

    I was wondering if anyone who was experienced with VS2008 knew if the serial number for VS2008 gets embedded into any EXE files or other files that are produced in the application so it can be backtracked to my registered copy?

    I don't think so man. My version of VS hasn't done anything like that.

    you can use a pirated copy to compile your tools to make sure you stay anonymous... hmm is this actually allowed? like you own a license so is using one from the web to compile stuff really illegal then?

    No, there isnt anything that is put in the code, but if you sign the exe then yeah.. if you dont sign it then people get a warning if they download it.

    Yeah, you just need to be able to use the WebBrowser control and then you can already start making account creators :)
