Executable Obfuscation

Post by theamigaone » Sun Feb 02, 2014 9:33 pm

Just got my copy of Hollywood and built my own example Exe's, put them in a hex editor only to notice the byte code could quite easily (at first glance) be reserve engineered. Is there any compiler flags to compress or obfuscate to make it harder to peek.

Did you try the COMPRESS argument? This should make obvious things like strings invisible... By the way, it's impossible to get the original code out of a compiled Hollywood script because it's all bytecode so a decompiled version will definitely not be very readable.

Thanks, thought there was a compress function.
