It's a nice little script, the people above me are just being overly hostile, but yeah you would get a better response if you simply posted your code for it here so we can compile it ourselves, make sure it is inside of the [code] tags though.
Hopefully you'll make some other stuff that we can look at.
It's not 'hostile' to be wary of executables uploaded onto the Internet by people you don't know. It's naive not to be.
I won't download software published by someone I can't trust without the source code. I want to compile it myself because I want the guarantee that what the person says the executable does is what it actually does.
I understand that, and I feel the same when it comes to people using facebook because of their data harvesting, but even I know it isn't that serious, so this program might trigger your anti virus, shutdown your pc, maybe even attempt to trasmit data over the internet (which would be your own fault for not having a good fire wall).
well it works fine, it asks you for your name, age, gender, then outputs it and closes.
because I have no reason to assume otherwise, I nor any of my software detected malicious behaviour, if I knew assembly I'd deconstruct it and prove it to you, but I don't and I can't, so we'll just have to wait for him to post his source code.
I don't download from strangers, and I rarely use software that isn't open-source. Anti-virus's and anti-malware software isn't perfect, and doesn't catch new malware until it first gets discovered, then definitions get updated in the software -- which could take weeks, months, years depending on the sophistication of the software.
I'm not "hostile", and this isn't personal, I'm just skeptical when some random-guy-on-the-internet says "Try my program, here's the executable but you can't see my code!", especially on a forum dedicated to programming and posting code.
