password protection

26 posts in this topic

ok hi

im sure this has been asked b4 but i went through three search pages looking for this but too no avail

i have this script:

#include <GuiConstants.au3>
; GUI
$passwd = InputBox("Security Check", "Enter your password.", "", "*")
if $passwd = "qwerty" Then 
    MsgBox (0,"","Greatings") 
Else 
    Exit
EndIf   

GuiCreate("Wireless Policy Deleter", 225, 50)
$Button_1 = GUICtrlCreateButton ("Delete the Wireless Policy", 0, 0, 225)

$password = "qwerty"

; MENU 
GuiCtrlCreateMenu("File")
GUISetState () 

Do
$msg = GUIGetMsg()
Select
Case $msg = $GUI_EVENT_CLOSE
ExitLoop
Case $msg = $Button_1
RegDelete ("HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Policies\Microsoft\Windows\Wireless"); Delte Reg
EndSelect

; GUI MESSAGE LOOP
GuiSetState()
Until GuiGetMsg() = $GUI_EVENT_CLOSE

wat i want is it to retrive the password from a seperate file or if possible from a online source but seperate file seems liek it would work well

p.s i give credits to the creator of the above script it is not mine if it was yours please tell me and i will put credits in

cheers C.W

You could use an INI file to save it in.

$Ini = @ScriptDir & "\PW.ini"
$passwd = InputBox("Security Check", "Enter your password.", "", "*")
if $passwd = INIRead($Ini, "Security", "Password, "No Set") Then 
   If $passwd = "Not Set" Then Exit 
   MsgBox (0,"","Greatings") 
Else 
    Exit
EndIf

At some point you have to write the INI file either using a script or manually creating it. It's really a simple text file that follows a given format. I've already given you the code to read an INI entry so Here is the breakdown

$Ini is the file name of the INI file

[security] is the section name and appears as I show it here.

password is the key name and will appear as

password=

In this case I made the default value to be "not set" so if that was actually written to the Ini file then the line as shown above would read

password=not set

If the key does not exist then it will use the default value. That's why I added the Line

If $passwd = "Not Set" Then Exit

There is good information in the help file about the standard INI file structure. You will also find how to write to the ini file in there.

Once you feel comfortable with the ini file (read as "after reading the help file") I can show you a quick and easy method to force the user to enter a password the first time. That's a simple variation on what I already gave you.

ok i would would create a file called PW.ini

then in ti would be

[security]

password=watever

and then i click save as PW.ini

and put it in the same directory as the program u wrote above?

am i correct

Yes. But have you read the INI functions in the help file??? Because there is a slightly better method and that method involves NOT creating the file.

No. Here is what you want to do

Global $Ini = @ScriptDir & "\PW.ini"
If Not FileExists($Ini) Then
   _SetPass(1)
Else
   $passwd = InputBox("Security Check", "Enter your password.", "", "*")
   if $passwd = INIRead($Ini, "Security", "Password", "") Then 
      If $passwd = "" Then Exit
      MsgBox (0,"","Greetings") 
   Else 
      Exit
   EndIf
EndIf

Func _SetPass($atmpt)
    If $atmpt = 3 Then Exit;;; Change this to set how many attempts are allowed.
    $iPass = InputBox("Security Check", "Enter your password.", "", "*")
    If StringLen($iPass) <4 Then
      MsgBox(4096, "Error", "Your password must be at least 4 characters")
      _SetPass($atmpt)
    EndIf
    $cPass = InputBox("Security Check", "Re-enter your password.", "", "*")

    If $iPass <> $cPass Then
       $atmpt += 1
       _SetPass($atmpt)
   Else
      IniWrite($Ini, , "Security", "Password", $cPass)
   EndIf
EndFunc

When you first run the script the file will not exist (if you created one then delete it) so It jumps to The _SetPass() function and allows them 3 attempts at setting a proper password. If they fail the script will exit otherwise the INI is created with the proper password. I didn't test this but I think I have it right.

Here is one that does the same thing without the extra function

If Not FileExists($Ini) Then
   For $I = 1 to 4
      If $I = 4 Then Exit
      $iPass = InputBox("Security Check", "Enter your password.", "", "*")
      If StringLen($iPass) <4 Then
         MsgBox(4096, "Error", "Your password must be at least 4 characters")
         ContinueLoop
      EndIf
      $cPass = InputBox("Security Check", "Re-enter your password.", "", "*")
      If $iPass <> $cPass Then
         ContinueLoop
      Else
         IniWrite($Ini, , "Security", "Password", $cPass)
         ExitLoop
   Next
Else
   $passwd = InputBox("Security Check", "Enter your password.", "", "*")
   if $passwd = INIRead($Ini, "Security", "Password", "") Then 
      If $passwd = "" Then Exit
      MsgBox (0,"","Greetings") 
   Else 
      Exit

EndIf

second 1 has problems first works fine

ohhh i see what u mean u mean it prompts u to make a password when uf irst run the program

i just have 1 more question how do i stop somone from just opening the file reading the password then running program and accessing whats there?

That's the drawback to using an INI. However if it is the same user that set it then it doesn't matter. That can also be solved but I'm getting to tired to think about it right now.

What problem did you have with the second? I may have messed up the syntax but I don't see it right now.

EDIT: actually I do know how to secure it but like I said I'm getting tired and I'm sure to mess it up. I'll work on it later but the idea is to use _StringEncrypt().

There are 2 ways to do that.

1) Use windows filerights, but then u can't use autoit :)

2) encrypt the text in there. You could simply do that by replacement or so

$encrypted = "" ; Fill with nothing a.k.a. make the var
$text = "inputtext" ; Fill the variable
For $i = 1 To StringLen($text) Step 1 ; Loop from 1 to the length of $text and increase $i by 1 every loop
    $encrypted = $encrypted & Asc(StringLeft($text, 1)) + Asc($i) & "|" ; Every loop add to the $encrypted variable and make an ascii character from the most left inputed character and add the ascii char of the number of loops after that. Adds the pipe symbol (|) between every looped addition.
    $text = StringTrimLeft($text, 1) ; remove the left character from the variable
Next ; loop the loop :)
msgbox(0, "encrypted?", $encrypted) ; show the output :P

msgbox(0, "encrypted?", $encrypted); show the output :p
There is already a simple _StringEncrypt() function in the UDFs that will encrypt/decrypt the password in the INI and you can set the encryption level.

Okay, your right. :)

Anyway, it much more fun to write it yourself. hehe.

This is just an very easy example that is VERY easy to crack, but at least it's a push in the right direction.

you need to put a "For" before your "next" where it is nessasary...check the helpfile for help with that
