Securing your programs.

6 posts in this topic

Hey guys, I recently had a problem with someone who decompiled a program I made (Forgot to disallow while in a rush) and then tried to claim it as their own. Now that I'm a little more AutoIt savvy I've taken to Obfuscation and disallowing decompilation.

I'm just curious as to what other methods people are using to make sure their scripts don't get ripped off. :rolleyes:

Here is another thing you could do, but i wouldn't recommend it.

IMO Obfuscation is a pretty good protection.

You probably need more time reversing an obfuscated script then rewrite it.

A basic solution to keep unexperienced users away : After compiling the script, open the exe with a hex editor and change the first 2 or 3 "UPX" words into anything you want (PEC for example).

The best solution is a compiled language. If you are set on people not stealing your AutoIt source, you will have to live with obfuscation and possibly PE modifications.

Thanks guys, nice suggestions. I haven't had any problems since I started obfuscating, but I'll toy around with the other suggestions.

That's good to hear. Well, technically I didn't actually hear you but you know what I mean.
