Someone decompiled my script...

14 posts in this topic

I use AutoIt for many month now and i make realy nice programs.

But today i discovered that someone has decompiled my script, while i did not allowed decompiling when i compiled the script. Now my script has become public......

How can that be?

There is a cracked de-compiler out on the web somewhere. If you search the forums for decompile you will find many topics on the issue.



Get Beta versions Here Get latest SciTE editor Here AutoIt 1-2-3 by Valuater - A great starting point.

I believe Smoke fixed that, so there's no way to tell it's an actual script.

No, he made something that will patch your compiled exe so that it's not detected as an autoit script, I don't know where it is.

No, it's not fixed. I believe there is a hacked decompiler that works with the current version.

As part of the changes I'm working on at the moment is storing the script in a token form that the autoit engine can work with but that can't be easily converted back into text form. Exe2Aut won't be able to read it back so that means that someone would have to write a converter from scratch which is much harder.

Hello :P

if a script must contain sensitives informations as passwords, what is the best way to store them ?

Compiling a script (with passwords visible into the code) is it an acceptable way ?

Thanks :nuke:

There is no "safe" way to store passwords currently, there are alternative measures, some use EnCodeIt... some use Files/Registry/Ini(s) to store their information... they encrypt it upon output, and decrypt from within the .exe upon input... unfortunately, your source is laid wide open, so the decryption functions are right there for anyone to play with... If/When Jon finishes what he's doing, this would be a great step having a more secure .exe.

EnCodeIt works just fine for me, no need for extra security wich slow down compiling and executing.

What about Assign, Execute, and Eval (and others) that won't work when you use it?

I have decompiled a backup I had when I lost the original. I was able to find a hacked decompiler that worked with the lastest beta.
