Something to think about. Please Fix this issue.

Postby rocky.pabillore » Wed Apr 26, 2017 5:25 pm

My coworker found this powershell decompiler. The source code I heard was not published. Some of us users write confidential codes with passwords and wrap it up using your packaging tool to create .exe.

This tool can decompile any exe scripts.

please help your users be aware and fix this issue.

Packages built with the latest service builds cannot be unpacked with this tool as far as we know.
Script packages are and never will be 100% secure. Due to the nature of PowerShell and its engine the code MUST exist as clear text at some point in the process. We strongly advise to never use passswords or any other confidential information in your code.

we just tested this on a script that was compiled using version 3, and it did spit out everything as a string. Version 5 so far did not.

I was referring to the product version and not the powershell version. Obviously you will need to repackage your executables
