Well I know here in this community there are a lot of software developers. And I really will appreciate your oppinion about my latest project. Not valid for orbiter itself. But if you have programs developed and you are really tired that the people can hack or pirate it easily. Try this:

Good thing, it will simplify fixing shareware programs a lot.
Just fake a server, and your serial is valid.

Or just redirect the host to local host and install a local server. Also, how will the program react if the server is DOSed?

Some classic ideas from cryptography are always better to verify if a serial is really valid...

Well thanks for your critics that gives me some ideas to continue improving it. Well... every system are vulnerable but... not all the people are like you two (A really well programmers) normal people not always are able to pirate an app xD.

Finally i've added a SSL signature to the response. So only I have the private key, everyone have the public key and can test if its really me who sended the message. I think this resolve the "fake server" problem at all.
