5 posts in this topic

#1 ·  Posted (edited)

i was writing a program with autoit and i was thinking to sell it to my customers, i made a something to check a username and password from my internet host and if they was correct .......

Unfortunately i noticed that all of source code can be seen if i open compiled script with a hex viewer like XVI32 so if someone know a little about AutoIt he can change my source and change where i made a 'If'. just look at the picture below and tell me there is anyway to fix it.

Other than using Obfuscator and/or UPX to at least make it harder to read, there's not much you can do to a script to make it impossible to be read.


If I posted any code, assume that code was written using the latest release version unless stated otherwise. Also, if it doesn't work on XP I can't help with that because I don't have access to XP, and I'm not going to.

I hereby grant any person the right to use any code I post, that I am the original author of, on the autoitscript.com forums, unless I've specifically stated otherwise in the code or the thread post. If you do use my code all I ask, as a courtesy, is to make note of where you got it from.

The easiest step is just to turn on obfuscation during the "compile".

Look at obfuscator and it's options.

There are more drastic measures you can take. A forum search ought to turn them up.

Of course, anything you do, someone else can undo if they're willing to make the effort.

Edit: Drats, beat by a few seconds! lol

You have the possibility to save the code to the exe!

#AutoIt3Wrapper_Res_SaveSource=                 ;(Y/N) Save a copy of the Scriptsource in the EXE resources. default=N

probably #AutoIt3Wrapper_Res_SaveSource=y is set.
