I am working on an express application. I obfuscate the source code using javascript-obfuscator. I am using nexe cli for generating a single exe from the obfuscated code. Can anyone tell me if there is any way to reverse engineer the exe genertaed by nexe?

Thanks in advance!!!

  • Yes. If it's runnable, it's possible to reverse engineer it.

    Are you looking for a "yes", or something more detailed? Please try and be specific as to what you're looking for.

  • @tmr232 I want to know if it is possible to reverse-engineer the exe generated by nexe, then what tool/method should be used to test it?

    I think yes. But it would require a lot of time.

Of course there is, I will quote an example of the Pytoexe or Pyinstaller module of python that "converts" Python code to executable, or also of most JavatoExe that convert Java files to executables, what happens in reality is that a compressed executable is created , that is, your environment is copied into an executable to run, following my examples if you take any Java executable converted to executable and extract it you will get the equivalent of a JVM runtime, similar to the Python example, and if you has dazzled some types of obfuscation are very simple to remove so choose well.
