Obfuscator error with execute()

13 posts in this topic

Hello,

Sorry to post in a very old post:

'?do=embed' frameborder='0' data-embedContent>>

I create a new one (as requested) to post my problem.

 
-###2 Obfuscation Error: Found Execute() statement which will lead to problems running your obfuscated script.
>### current Func: _MSI_ReturnCode
C:\Users\rc\AppData\Local\Temp\temp-11.au3(643,1) Warning for line:Local $Result = Execute('$MSI_RC_' & $CodeValue) 

-###2 Obfuscation Error: Found Execute() statement which will lead to problems running your obfuscated script.
>### current Func: _MSI_ErrorCode
C:\Users\rc\AppData\Local\Temp\temp-11.au3(662,1) Warning for line:Local $Result = Execute('$MSI_EC_' & $CodeValue) 

-#############################################################################################
-#### Obfuscator Found   2 Error(s)!!!!    This means your script could have problems running properly.  ####
-#############################################################################################
+> Obfuscator v1.0.31.1 finished processsing 667 lines, stripped 58 comment lines and Merged 0 Continuation lines.
+>        Created:C:\Users\rc\AppData\Local\Temp\temp-11_Obfuscated.au3 with 609 lines.
How can I fix the problem? I try to change execute to eval and the problem is the same. I use the version 3.3.10.2

Thanks for your help

ricky03,

I wish I had a pound (or a Swiss franc ;)) for every time this gets asked. Obfuscator cannot determine the function you will be running withint hat Execute function because it is only set at runtime. Hence it has no idea how to set the required function name to match the obfuscated names it will give to the various functions you might be calling and so errors. The fact that this simple thing appears to escape the understanding of most of the user base is why Jos is discontinuing development of Obfuscator - and I cannot say I blame him at all. :(

My standard advice is not to use Obfuscator when it isn't clear why Execute() isn't working, as you will only end up crippling your script. ;)

Why do you need to Obfuscate this particular script?

Nearly ready with the first version of au3stripper which will replace Obfuscator. :)

Because Obfuscation is outdated and really not needed.

At least it will make newbie harder to get the source code.

I'm really need to protect my scripts. Not saying my scripts are very worthy,

but some of them content credentials for LAN's database, some even

content credentials for write access.

I know the best is not to put the credentials on the scripts,

but I need that to read (and write) the database.

If someone copy the exe files out of office and get the source code,

then my future in this office is in danger :(

Why is au3stripper different from obfuscator?

Because obfuscation of an autoit script is not secure, so it only gives a false sense of security, and anyone with the knowledge to be able to get at your script will probably figure out whatever it is you're trying to hide.


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.

Hello,

thanks for all answers, I agree with that :

At least it will make newbie harder to get the source code.

 

Ok, I will forget to obfuscate this script. The goal of my topic is also to fix a bug (if exist) or understand my mistakes. I will wait for au3stripper...

I really don't understand the relation between a newbie and Obfuscation, but that is not important.

AU3Stripper will have the Func and Variable stripping of Obfuscator including the support for:

  • The new assigment of a UDF FUNC to a Variable ie:   $testvar = _testfunc
  • The old /RM (the old /om) swithc which will rename the Funcs and Variables to a short name to minimise the needed space for the script.
  • A new  /PE (PreExpand) switch which implements the idea of guinness to replace the content of Const defined Vars in the actual code.

Obfuscator support has stopped and will not be adapted any further to properly support the latest release.

Most of the time I only ever use striponly but there are some circumstances where obfuscation is nice to make it more difficult for someone to try and rip you off. If they decompile the exe they have to take lots of time to de-obfuscate it (which I have tried on my own source and I cannot even make sense of obfuscated code) and then take lots of time to understand it all. Limited usefulness but like any tool, when you need it you want it available.

Morthawt,

 

they have to take lots of time to de-obfuscate it

And you think that tools to do this are difficult to find? :rolleyes:
