I was just checking my code and it totally visible in a hexeditor.
How do i protect it? im using newest MT4 build.
Can you post a screenshot of what you are seeing?
This is what I see (just the copyright visible, nothing else)
I read about the new mql4(Build 600+) and already updated my EAs, now i have a question. How secure is the new protection against crackers and other types of executable cracking and modifying the code. EX: hex editing date of expiration, memory dumps, etc.. How secure is a simple time restriction(expiration date) on a EA now? How to implement new protection techniques using the new language?
You can use YPY MQ4 Code Protector - free online service for encryption and licensing a of source code in *.mq4 format
Well, it is not human-readable before compilation, but it tells nothing about the protection. It would be interesting to show a sample of the output from the outdated decompiler, to demonstrate the advantage of the protection. From my first guess it is obfuscated, but i cannot see if it is protected.
Not that we are aware of.
And it is recommended to use the cloud protector service.
