Just think about it - this application is meant to make your apps more secure, or better said, your 'compiled' source.
If it's source is now released, what could people do? Exactly! They'd be able to write an application that decompiles apps that are protected by HotKeyCamo.
YOU think about it, and think past the basic "oh with the source out, then decompilers will be able to circumvent it and its useless." no shit sherlock. its the never ending cycle of security action vs reaction. but you think i'm just wasting my time flaming around?
what about this:
what is the purpose of "protecting" your source to begin with? usually because you plan on selling your software commercially and want to protect your intellectual property.
so you write your code, then you run it through this "compiler" written by some anonymous user, which does who knows what to your source, and then spits out an exe. lets say for example that this HKC compiler here attaches a rogue keylogger or other malware. then, you are feeling all safe that your source is protected, and you go ahead and release your software to the public. you start making some sales, then someone reports that youre software is stealing their passwords. OOPS, you just compiled and released software with your name and company behind it that has malware attached. angry users at best, lawsuits at worst.
of course this is all farfetched, but the possibility still exists, since no one knows what his "fuzz" consists of. thats the point. but no matter what you do in terms of security, eventually you have to put your trust in something. do you trust microsoft, do you trust mozilla, do you trust autohotkey, do you trust HotkeyCamo. i don't doubt that this software is legit, but when the author responds to legitimate queries with the attitude he has, it should give one pause.
@Guest3456 This bickering (although rather fun) is ultimately pointless agreed?
i don't think its pointless at all, unless i'm missing something blatant. but it seems you're just as stubborn as me, so its unlikely that anything will change. sorry for de-railing your thread, but i think the discussion is important nonetheless.
