When a program like VB
.NET compiles a project into an EXE file, how secure is the program? Obviously a lot of the information within the project is used only to compile, and isn't actually contained within the EXE. But how much, if any, an EXE file be 'de-compiled' or reverse engineered?
For example if I have a password within a textbox, can my EXE file be decompiled to reveal the password?
Thanks in advance
