Here's something I was wondering.
I have a VB application how's calling another application. This second application is a commandline software that use a password as parameter.
my code looks like that:
Public const MYPASSWORD ="ThisIsMyPassword12345" dim result as integer result = Shell("C:\Application2.exe " & MYPASSWORD , vbHide)
I was asking myself if it was secure to store a password as a constant inside an application.
Once the code is compile and transform to binary format, is it possible that a hacker retreive this password with some kind of password recovery tool.
