I know that with the use of text or hex editors, strings can be seen inside compliled exe files, even when compiled to native code.
To avoid giving unnecessary clues about the workings of my software to hackers, rather than actually write the strings inside quotes, what if I convert them to the ASCI codes e.g., Chr(52)+Chr(53) instead of "45". Can this be detected? Do I need to use encryption? If so, suggestions please.
Are there any tools that make decompiling a VB6 program more difficult?
