Question about AUTOIT3

Recommended Posts

Giordano

Hi there! Sorry for my bad english!

I have a doubt about autoit3: If i compile my script into an .exe, is there a way with someone can decompile and retrieve my code?

Thanks

Giordano,

Searching the forums will provide you with a lot more information in greater detail, but in brief:

- Your plain language script is within the compiled .exe, but in compressed form. It is not immediately viewable with a hex editor, but is by no means secure as it is expanded in memory when the .exe is run.

- Obfuscator (part of the full SciTE4AutoIt3 package) will obscure your script by changing variable and constant names (and a lot more!), which makes it harder to decompile but again does not render the .exe secure.

So, compiling an AutoIt script will prevent quick snooping, but a determined, experienced hacker can relatively easily get your source - including passwords, specific filenames, etc - or the encryption routines you have used in your script to encrypt/decrypt them if they are stored in another file.

I hope this helps - although it is probably not what you wanted to hear! :graduated:
