Use of database connection secure?

2 posts in this topic

I have a question relating to using a MySQL connection to a database in a script, then building an exe out of it. Will the database information be secure from the end users after it is an exe? Will the end user also need the ODBC driver installation to run MySQL?

Any other more sure options, ideas or suggestions?

Thank you for your time.

The end user will require to install the ODBC driver in order to use it.

One who is skilled with AutoIt, can likely decompile your source code and obtain a user name and password out of it, even when obfuscated. I suggest you create a separate account on your database that has read-only permissions.
