Laserlock MARATHON protection

1. Introduction

Laserlock Marathon - Page 1

INTRODUCTION

MLS LaserLock International Inc. specialized in the research & development of software protection systems and Laserlock Marathon is the latest copy protection system from the company. Headquartered in Thessaloniki, Greece, it was founded in 1989 and has gained worldwide acceptance since having released the copy protection system, LaserLock. In this review, we are going to trial how effective LASERLOCK MARATHON protection for CDs is.

Laserlock Marathon Features

Laserlock offers protection against bit-to-bit copying programs, using a patented signature on the CD and enhanced anti-debugging and encryption techniques, which resembles a similar technology from the Russian Star force company.

According to the company, laserlock marathon, consists of the following features:

1. Sophisticated Code Encryption software.

2. Physical Signature on CD, made during a unique and special glass-mastering process.

3. State-of-the-Art Debug Prevention software engineering embedded in the software code.

Also, the new version of LaserLock offers protection that is non-generic as each protection package is characterised by a unique locking parameter that is specified during the LaserLocking procedure and provides complete protection against illegal re-mastering and reproduction.

Test

For our tests we are going to use the Alcohol 120%, Blind write 5, Clone CD, and Disc Dump copy software programs.

MarathonDemo CD contains one Demo MFC application file (test.exe) and one folder (ARML2440) which includes two files (ARML2440 & ARML2440.IN). The method we are going to follow is to first create the image of the protected demo CD to our hard disk drive and then burn it onto CD-R media. Basic hardware specifications for our test are: Pentium 1.6GHz PC with a PlexWritter Premium CDRW.
