Anyone who knows me will happily inform you that I am, as my username implies, rather tech obsessed. I'm not a happy geek when it comes to smartphone cases though, and it's been a long time since I've been able to say I've got the perfect case for my current device. Way back, when I carried an iPhone 5, I swore by my Otter Box for protection. It was bulky, but you could probably drive a tank over it with confidence. The thing is, the iPhone was tiny by comparison to the Samsung Galaxy S8+ that I am using these …

Hi everybody, I'd like to ask you if there are some ways how to protect .NET exe and dlls against decompilation. [B]I am not interested in any form of obfuscation[/B], only methods based on (or equivalent to) compiling traditional compilers to machine language. There doesn't matter if commercial or open source, portability is not an issue - the only goal is strong protection. Thank you for any reasonable tips. Regards, VIeditorlover

My motherboard got fried after an update to Windows 8.1 I don't know how, it did. Before I send the laptop off for repair, I want to backup my drives. I've removed the HDD and am reading it through an exertnal HDD reader to my Win 7 laptop. Now, I can't get access to the user files, which don't have user access. I can't change the user access as recommended by http://knowledge.seagate.com/articles/en_US/FAQ/203795en and other similar sites, because the users are all greyed out. Even if I go to Folder>Properties>Security>Advanced> all of these tabs: Perissions, Auditing, Owner and Effective Permissions all …

Hi, I want to build a web application for customers to run on their local servers on their computers offline. I want that my code logic be protected and no one can edit and use my code without my permission. Even administrator(client) of that application don't have permission to edit or redistribute it. Is there any way to protect the code without encoding software? Is there any solution in PHP or ASP.NET?

Hi Dw I'm working with permissions in my program I want it to protect the chosen file by permissions and now what I want is how can I make these permissions unchanged by a user? Or if not possible because I don't want even the administrator to change these permission for the security of the file or contents it will be holding, or maybe after I protected the file with the permission and it a user or a program want to modify or open the folder the system not just only my program request an access password which will be …

I made great progress this morning in resolving a number of problems that were plaguing my Win7 laptop. It was difficult to find good info about how to resolve these problems. I can provide more details if anyone needs them. Here are the bare bones: * **High CPU** There are a number of common programs that churn the CPU. These are known problems but the Software companies don't seem to care. **CONDUIT Search Protect** From what I've read, this is almost like a virus. Softronic Download service has an agreement with them and include this in their 'Express' downloads. If …

I've been writing a technical book, but after Chapter 1 I realised that it would be more useful to people as a searchable online resource. I imagine that the customer subscribes and can then search the content for solutions. So my question is how do I protect online content and charge monthly for access to the content. Is there a service I can use, or script or...? In practice the content will be created by H&M HTML output, so I probably only need to protect access to a directory.

Hi There is hardly a problem with adding a new hard drive to a desktop computer but how should one update the hard drive on which the operating system is installed? Hard drives fail, I have experienced only one over a period of twenty years and that was replaced under warranty! Even though it was not very old, of course. So protect your computer by replacing your hard drives. The problem is, how does one do that for the system drive? Most systems have OEM installed operating systems and have no discs -when bought used. Geoff

I'm trying to find a solution to protect all the software developed in the company I work in. Till now we've been working with hardlocks, but we are trying to cut on expences and wanting to develop our own software protection system. I know that there some free tools, like for instance activelock, but we aren't interested in using third party tools either, since these tools are frequently open to attacks and we might have migration problems in the future. I've been googling and I can't find any good techniques for developing this type of solution. We've seen some ideas …

Ok over the last several weeks i've been building a website for fun. Its basically a forum site, with topics and comments. I use queries in their basic form. Now that i'm trying to protect my site I'm getting the impression that i have to rewrite all of my code. I basically wrote the entire site with procedural code. I send most of the variables through GET through the URL because i wanted the option for the user to bookmark the site or conversation they went too. I dont have any personal information from my users. The only thing in …

Hello people, I have created a game for windows7 platform and want to put it on the internet and on cd for a small fee. I was wondering if anyone knows a good copy protection mechanism which i can use. I already find a few anti copy protection mechanisms, does anyone know these systems, or maybe do you know a better system instead? - lockPE doesnt seem to work for me because it causes errors when I try the program - the tool from logicprotect.com is way too expensive, i need something familair, but cheaper. - exesecure.com offers an exesecure …

Hi all, I've been using ajax for a while and I've been storing my trivial php include files in the public directory tree. Then I thought, I really should be putting my classes and includes above the public document root (as I used to do before I started dabbling with ajax). I know js can't access anything above document root, but a php file called by ajax js could. That just seems like a fudge to me (?). I suppose the php file being called by ajax HAS to be within doc root otherwise it couldn't work. Seeing as headers …

I did find another thread on this topic, but it didn't fully fit my issue. I would appreciate any help in resolving this issue, which is as follows: I have McAfee Virus Plus and I suddenly began to get notifications from the program that there was no virus protection. When I clicked "Fix Now" it took me to the McAfee page for an upgrade. I paid for the highest protection they had, downloaded it, and it still is notifying me that there's no virus protection. Windows Defender also gave me a warning that there was no virus protection. I ran …

I have been trying to create a program that asks for a username and password, and if the user gets it right exits the program, if they get it wrong asks again, and if they get it wrong again logs out of the system. TWO QUESTIONS: 1: is this possible? 2: if it is, can anyone give me an idea on how to do this? I have this so far: (i think it might work, but note that so far i haven't included the part where it logs out; i obviously don't know how, or if it is possible). [CODE]p …

Hello, recently i found one of my old USB devices but when i plugged it in and tried to delete a file it told me it was write protected. Now i have decided to format it but it doesnt let me because it is write protected. It doesnt have a slide button to turn off write protection, and ive tried multiple low level formatters in vain. I also tried to delete partition, and to change the regustry value to 0, but that doesn't seem to work either! The USB is 1GB and it isnt a brand name USB as far …

Hello. I'm trying to find out how to make it so only certain applications I have given authorisation to can use a C DLL I have created so that when I release it with a .Net application it cannot be used by others. I found out how to check what the current running exe is called. However this is not practical for obvious reasons. So is it possible to somehow make a DLL do a MD5 check of the exe that is using it? Any other methods of checking if the exe is "authorised" are also appreciated. Thanks for your …
