I need to include a password as part of a VBscript. I need a method of encrypting this password so it cannot be read. I have uses the Microsoft tool (screnc.exe) to change a vbs to a vbe, for encrypting a script, but that method is very easy to hack into. Does anyone have an idea for how to include a password in a script and keep it secret from some fairly sophisticated prying eyes.
