    Hello all.

    I am a php programmer and I intent to secure my software such that it isn't used illegally. I have an idea to encrypt the code and decrypt using a function stored remotely but it's not foolproof. I want it like the way I have to renew my cpanel licenses every time. Can this be redirected to the appropriate person(cpanel programmer)?

    Thanks,
    Swaroop

    Well, the cpanel system isnt foolproof. Theoretically, a 'cracker' could crack the cpanel software and take out the licensing system code and replace it with some 'dummy' code and then redistribute the binaries. However, due to the regular updates to cpanel in the EDGE and CURRENT trees, these crack jobs would be rendered useless by new features and bugfixes in new builds.

    Regards,
    Brent

    Go on, have a guess
    Indeed. And bear in mind that it's encoded, not encrypted - there's a big difference.
