String literals loaded in memory
Posted on 2007-10-17
How do I hide strings in my application? I used Process Explorer from sysinternals, and I could see all the strings in my program. I tried various packers/protectors but none of them worked.
Are there any good techniques to hiding/encrypting literal strings? For example, I might store my database username and password in my app, is there a way to stop Process Explorer from reading it?
