i want to know if an obfuscated php script can be decoded and how.
What you sent is not really obfuscation. i have figured out your mysql username, password, host and database name without any decoding. What you did was just to change your variable names to very long names but no obfuscation was done on the real code.
You want real obfuscation? its plain gibberish that you'd see in your code. even you wont recognise your own code.
I just uploaded the updated version of my php obfuscator like 3 mins ago. download it and see real obfuscation in action: http://www.afrisoft.org/index.php/phplocker
99% of php obfuscators use eval() function to run the original code one page at a time.
To decode the obfuscated script, look for the eval() function on that same page and replace it with echo. it spews out the real code like a baby.
If u need an obfuscator, check d free obfuscator i have on my site http://www.afrisoft.org . its called phplocker and i'm presently creating a more secure version that will be available for free in a week.
aw r u? long tyme no visualisation!
dhtml told me he fixed my "email2database" script for you. Is it working fine now?
