Re: encoding scripts (so that user can't see passwords easily)?
If someone can get physical access to the disk, then there is not a
single thing you can do to stop someone who is:
3) has time
4) is a criminal
Nothing can stop them, The best you can do is slow them down, know
that it is happening maybe while it is happening or worst case shortly
Security is not a "thing" it is a process that balances risk / reward,
cost / benefit
