    Default Breaking the Windows Script Encoder

    Hi all, <BR><BR>I have just read a very depressing article about breaking the WSE encryption. <BR><BR>I have been developing a Content Management System for the last few months, with the intention of selling it. <BR><BR>However, this article totally ruins any hope of this now happening - I built the CMS (purposefully) to run without installing ANY components (pure ASP uploads etc), so it would defeat the object if I now need to compile my code. <BR><BR>If anyone knows of a workaround to my problem, I would really appreciate you letting me know. <BR><BR>I hope that if anyone (like myself until minutes ago) has been relying on the WSE that they now do not. <BR><BR>P.S - I have not posted the URL of the article as I think this would be irresponsible and encouraging what has effectively ruined my plans, but if individuals would like to read it, ICQ me and I will send you details. <BR><BR>Kind thanks, James. <BR><BR>ICQ# : 53022742

    I think you got the link from me ;-), and I know it&#039;s a pain in the *** but I&#039;m afraid there&#039;s very little you can do about it. I think you *should* post the link so people get warned about that crappy encoder and don&#039;t assume their code is good encrypted. But since you didn&#039;t do it I won&#039;t also (anybody without ICQ mail me at (without the NOSPAM part)). I&#039;m not aware of any other encoding technique, maybe there&#039;s an third-party DLL that can do it. It&#039;s worth an search on google.<BR><BR>However, there&#039;s one thing I&#039;d like to poit out. The occasional viewer won&#039;t be able to see your sourcecode, and a lot of people don&#039;t know how to break the encoded parts, only an determined person can view your code. Maybe you can ship it after all with the WSE-encoding since people who really know ASP, won&#039;t *buy* an CMS system, they would probably make their own. People who don&#039;t know ASP probably don&#039;t know how to decrypt the code.<BR><BR>Good luck<BR><BR>Peter
