    Hello,

    I do have a custom made software, which i built for my personal use.

    Now the issue is somebody cracked my software and get my ftp details where is store my encrypted password.

    I want somebody who can check my software , crack it and get inside as that person did.So that we can shut that loophole.

    I know you will ask for source code which i do have but i want somebody go through without that coz that guy also got entry from software.

    Is there anybody who can help me or point me place where should i seek for help.

    Thanks

    Well i knew it that somebody will surely ask me the same question, and answer is very simple that the mobile number which is place on software itself is mine only.

    Anybody who have doubt such can call on that number , i will pay that calling charge in advance.

    Don't worry, nobody gonna ask and cry like you as did here.
    Everybody is enough intelligent here.

    About corrupt and infected : I really pity on you.Coz it is neither infected or corrupt.

    There's no loophole to be fixed here.

    You've got a very very bad design pattern right there in your software. You should have never stored sensitive information on the client side even more when you know third parties have access to your binary files. You should have either prompted for it, or implemented a whole different file management feature.

    There's no way to secure client-side stuff. No matter what kind of encryption or obfuscation you may use, your sensitive information is right there in the code waiting to be cracked... it's a matter of time.

    Did you check my software ?But still i didn't share with you.

    As per my work nature i need to give this software to my clients to unlock my encrypted files.ftp details within software and encrypted password details are saved ( on ftp ) as notepad in encrypt format.

    May be you are rite , no idea as i am not coder. Then could be best solution to avoid such things in future.

    As far as I understand, you need to deliver encrypted files to your clients.

    Then you say:

    ftp details are stored in your software binary files (very bad)
    password to decrypt your files is stored on your ftp (really bad), and probably in the same ftp where the actual encrypted files are (ridiculously bad)

    Maybe I didn't understand you quite well but this pattern ^ definitely sucks.

    You'll have to implement something more robust.
