The Zend Encoder Fiasco Part Deux - The Personal Attack
Jan 27, 2006 @ 12:49:20

In a previous post, Jim Plush</i. commented on the sites/utilities out there that reversed the encoding that the Zend Encoder project made possible. Well, he's back with a follow-up post and some surprising results.

This story just keeps getting better. Some of you may recall I posted a story a few weeks back when to my SHOCK I found that websites were offering to decoded Zend Encoded files for $5. There were literally 10+ sites I found in a simple search. I emailed all my Zend contacts right away to find out what the status of this is. No reply.

Here comes the good part... Zend's Chief Marketing Officer Mark de Visser had the balls to say that I was just as bad as the people who were able to reverse engineer the zend encoding by showing people the websites.

Jim also notes that several of the links to the sites were found in Zend's own forums (which, apparently, have been removed), and includes links to screenshots of their site...
