Part of the app I am writing allows users to create an encrypted, password-protected output file that they can email safely to a central store. I can't have the users choose their own password for the encryption as the central store needs to access the contents of all the output files emailed to it. So there is one password that gets set within my vb app.
I am worried that security will be compromised if the vb executable is somehow deconstructed? Is it possible to read the contents of an exe file (and thus find out the password)?
If so, any suggestions as to how I can get around this problem?
