Hello!

I want to make a script that changes the filesize of program files while still having them run as usual.

I tried FileWrite() but then the program wouldnt be recognized as a runnable program, could you guys help me to the right path? ^_^

Not sure what "Mod working in a thread" means but the reason i want to make exe files bigger is becouse i want to store information at a "secret place" eighter by reading from the exe file afterwards, or by looking at the file size and using that as a source of information to store a short string lika a password.

Also thanks for trying to help guys! :)

Pricehacker,

One way to do what you want is to use Alternate data streams (ADS) - I believe that there are some examples on the forum on how to use AutoIt to with them. But as this method has been used for malware in the past and is not necessarily transferrable between machines, I would counsel against its use as it is likely to be more trouble that it is worth.

I would agree with Melba, any AV product worth its salt is going to do a checksum of executables against any binary-appending of data. Most of the time if you do this it goes into the package.nw and is easily detectable. Even if it doesn't go there, it is going to change the hashsum, which will be detected.

And if you have to go to those lengths to get around AV detection, you're really beginning to stumble into the gray area between legitimacy and malware.

if you are just shooting for security by obscurity, seems it would be easier to reshack a dependency or bury it in the metadata.  You still have to write a script that tells everyone where it is in order to use that string, so where you put it matters very little to a determined attacker, imho.

  • Use a FileInstall() with some file meeting your size needs
  • define a huge string variable in your script, filled with  RANDOM characters.

And  that with "Mod Team working on a thread", I'm not sure, if I get this 100%...

 

I assume, that this means, don't help, while the moderator's team is discussing, if a question is apropriate or prohibited. As Melba and Logan were putting valuable answers to the orignal question, I assume, we are past this "is-it-legitim-discussion" :'(

This topic is borderline negative behavior, that almost always leans towards suspicious activities.

They are trying to conceal a malicious file for ill intent.

File hidden from either a program, or person.

File storage in a compression state.

Data storage is another possibility, but that too is suspicious.

or storing a product key, or a hardcoded password.....   Also, any target a payload of this manner would work on could get rekt without all the legwork.  Now if he said the D word or any of the keywords about putting it back together, then its piledriver time.

 

I do love your cynicism though, im jealous, it seems healthy and well cared for.  I have started leaning more towards:

Don't attribute to malice, that which can be attributed to coding some shit in the jankiest way possible because i had a bad idea that ended up working.

If you want to *CHECK* a password, a user has to put in on program startup, don't store the password itself, but it's hash code:

 

#Region Password Check
$PWD = ""
$PW_hash = "0x83CA415F8BA7FCE3163736F7BB472DA7F307B832"
Do
    $PWD = InputBox("Password Check", "enter your password", "", "*")
Until $PWD <> ""
_Crypt_Startup()
$Hash_Input = _Crypt_HashData($PWD, $CALG_SHA1)
If $Hash_Input <> $PW_hash Then
    MsgBox(64, "Wrong Password", "Please type your password again, the SHA1 Hash calculated doesn't match!", 10)
    Exit
EndIf
_Crypt_Shutdown()
#EndRegion

That way the user cannot retrieve your password from the compiled EXE, but *YOU* can verify, he/she knows it.

      Hi there,
      maybe someone can help me.
      If automated a script that should xcopy from various paths (all within C:\*\...) to a external Disk (HDD). (Backup data of users who get new pcs win10)
      I tried it several times with windows 10 home/pro any clients and never got any failure. (after the testing was done)
      But when i tried to run it shortly ago on a windows 7  pro x64 client, the script started (as i saw in taskmanagr.exe) but i didn't performed any of the actions when i came down to the xcopy part.
      (in the systemtray, it showd the scipt to start, but it was marked as "paused" and i couldn't stop this. No plan why)
       i inserted/attached the script down here.
      Does anyone know why? any ideas?backup-scrp.au3
      PS:  the tray debug line just added by today (i re-try it tomorrow when i've set up another win7 client to test with)
      PPS: i know my coding-style isn't very optimized

      Hello,
       
      I found a couple of threads asking quite similar questions, but without finding a "straight" solution to Access the internal phone storage as well as the plugged in SD-Card.
       
      While the SD Card is quite an easy Job (shutdown phone, remove SD, plug into some Card Reader, Access it using a drive letter), the internal storage isn't accessible this way.
       
      Of course I *CAN* Access all the (regular visible) Content, when connected to a Windows box.
       
      But this way I cannot estimate, where all the space was eaten up. So I'd like to know, how to address the "root" Folder of the internal storage of my Android Phone to get it's subfolders and files. Going through the whole Folder tree recursively isn't my Problem, it's just howto address the very first Folder and then to read all files (with sizes) and names of the subfolders.
       
       
      Regards, Rudi.

      Hey Everyone, I haven't been here in a while and recently picked up my old project. Still an FNG!
      To the point: I want to be able to push the button and either play an mp3, open a file, or open an exe program (all with the same button). The problem is that I don't know how to code for that at "case 1"
              Case 1                                                                                                                                             
                  Local $sRead = IniRead("config.ini", "Config", "One", "Default")                                
                  SoundPlay($sRead, @HotKeyPressed)                                                                     <-------------------------------
                  Run($sRead, @HotKeyPressed)                                                                                 <------------------------------- This 'Run' doesn't work even by itself!
      See code below for layout. If you need more information I will attach more code or answer any questions. Any help is greatly appreciated.
       
      Much Respect,
      Pike
       
      Func _HandleButton() $iClickCount += 1 $iTimer = TimerInit() AdlibRegister("CheckButtonPress", $CheckTime) EndFunc Func CheckButtonPress() If TimerDiff($iTimer) < $CheckTime Or $iTimer = 0 Then Return Switch $iClickCount Case 1 Local $sRead = IniRead("config.ini", "Config", "One", "Default") SoundPlay($sRead, @HotKeyPressed) Run($sRead, @HotKeyPressed) Case 2 MsgBox(0, "INFORMATION:", "Choose the file you want designated to this button") Local $sFileOpenDialog = FileOpenDialog(0, @ScriptDir & "\", "All (*.*)", $FD_FILEMUSTEXIST + $FD_MULTISELECT) If @error Then MsgBox($MB_SYSTEMMODAL, "", "No file(s) were selected.")

      Hey All,
      Yes, this is an odd request. 
      But is there a way to bulk up the size of the compiled program? 
      I know many want to reduce it's size, but I want to increase it.
      What methods do you suggest?
