XCrypt is a.NET component for safe encryption and decryption of text data.
It will be appreciated that a coding error of this kind, can have a wide range of impact. A server running on an unprotected system could be hacked, creating a denial of service or disruption of service. Imagine a server on which an important application runs, which when infected with the malware can cause its owner serious harm. A warning of this kind could be a life saver.
An exploit of this kind could also render a computer completely useless. A networked printer could have an application or script infected with this kind of malware. A user could then have any text printed by that printer read out by malware when viewed in an internet browser.
That’s why it’s so important to ensure that people who are updating applications or system components use common sense.

When installing software, always ensure that you verify the files have not been altered. If the ZIP file is not password protected, change it to something that only you know. If a friend or family member needs access to a file, change the password immediately, and ensure that they use a unique password, and are not connected to the internet.
Avoid programs that ask to install software or seek out data. Even when a program says it is there to help you, there could be a more sinister motive behind its development. Avoid ph
