Getting the original code from a compiled AutoIT .exe

3 posts in this topic

#1 ·  Posted (edited)

Good morning,

Sorry if it has alreadty been asked and answered but I have searched and didn't find an answer.

When I started working with AutoIT I was told that it is possible to extract the code from an autoit exe. I have finished a project and would like to make sure no one else has access to my code or at least has a very hard time getting it. Is the UPX compression a good enough compression to prevent said access or should I be getting a 3rd party compression (encryption?) software. And if so can you recomend one? Thank you fr your attention.

Take care

Search the forum for "secure source code" or something similar. You will find a lot of threads. All sum up to: "you can't protect your code 100%".

That's not what UPX is for if I remember correctly.
