How to compile an .aba file

Post by scubamaster » Sun Sep 07, 2008 3:50 am

It looks like an .aba file is compiled. I initially thought it was just a plain text file but when I opened an existing one in Notepad it looks like it is compiled code.

How can I generate an .aba file?

Avant Browser Options > Add-ons > "Addon-ons" tab, select the add-on, and export. ;)

Its plaintext encrypted. Not compiled.
For every 4 encrypted bytes, there is 3 unencrypted bytes.
Possibly blowfish cypher or a variant.

Sorry I may have got the specific corrolation of bytes wrong, however here an example of what I mentioned using the word "Hello".

Unencrypted plaintext:
Hello = 48 65 6C 6C 6F

Avants encryption:
Hello = 53 47 56 73 62 47 38 3D

Avants encryption uses dummy packaging if there is not enough bytes to suit the encryption

It actually carry both the Name, code, type (Auto execute/script button/command button), and the icon.
IE8(Pro), Microsoft Security Essentials

Secondary PC same as primary but with Windows 7 x64 Ultimate as the OS.
