Signing of compiled scripts

Recommended Posts

Think this has been discussed before, but is there any way of signing a compiled script with a certificate?

Reason I ask is that some AV products keep on producing 'Generic Trojan' false positives on compiled scripts. I'm told that signing with a certificate from a trusted source might reduce this problem.

@Anteaus, we have this wonderful search function on the forum, that would answer whether something has been discussed before or not. A quick search might have brought you to threads such as the two below. I know there are a number of other threads discussing this issue, which I will leave to you to discover on your own:

@JLogan3o13, I was going to think of some succinct reply, but instead I will do two things:

I will quote myself: "Think this has been discussed before" ie I have searched.

I will then quote Tankbuster, who sums it up about as well as I could:

"If someone gets offended by this, because he knows already 200 posts about it. Do not reply"

Though, the $1E06 question is whether an EV cert would be necessary to prevent false positives. I've so far found no definite answer to that. Though, feedback from C/C++ utility writers suggests neither may help that much, they still get false positives. So, forget it.

@Anteaus, Making friends here?

Maybe you want to tone it down a bit or else will gladly help you with that.

      I've recently been getting hammered by Symantec SEP deleting all of my compiled scripts so I'm trying to figure out how I could run my scripts uncompiled.
      Problem is, these scripts are typically launched from inside Citrix sessions that I don't have control of so I can't install AutoIT in there to get all the #Include files that my scripts are using.
      I tried to use AU3Stripper and while, yes that did create a single file and I could run it. it put it in a state that I couldn't easily maintain going forward.
      Is there any existing way to pull all the functions and drop them at the end of the main script?  Not sure about the Globals and Constants though, I guess they would have to go to the top which shoves everything else down.  I also need to maintain the current script spacing and comments as I often have to update older scripts and need the comments to help with that.

      In a bizarre twist of events a client installed McAfee Antivirus Plus (the paid version).  I have scripts running there, the simplest is a little HTTP downloader, which opens HTML pages and downloads some files.  These scripts have been running for years.  The new AV kills the process.  The process just "disappears" with no warning.
      I can not find an "exception" setting.  IT on site had to kill it in the Task Manager and restart the PC.  All other AV products (even the free ones) have an easily accessible Exception setting.
      Note that the standard McAfee that typically comes with Acrobat does not do this, yet.
      Any advice on this please? Other than "get a new AV"? This has been suggested and as they just dished out the cash, not a current option.

      - Can detect over 500 malware's known fake processes.
      - Very small and easy to use.

      1. Some processes can be found as false positives.
      2. Terminating a process may cause undesired results such as system's malfunction or shutdown. Please be careful!
      3. This program is ONLY for advanced users!
      4. Only tested on Windows 7 Home Premium, I need your testing result on other OS and machines!
      5. This is only a tool just to check for fake processes by their name.
