IconFile Package App

It is a desktop application that packages multiple files into one self-extracting executable file.

Overview

The created self-extracting package executable file can also start a specific module after extracting the package file. Therefore, you can package software installers, software update patches, etc. into a single self-extracting package file.

Design policy

We think that it is important that the created self-extracting package EXE file satisfies the following conditions.

  • The created package file does not require privilege elevation in direct execution of package.
    In order to prevent direct deprivation of administrator authority when attacked with unknown vulnerability.
  • The created package file takes measures against vulnerability of dll hijacking for an EXE file.
    In order to assum that it will be used as an installer package, it needs to respond to dll hijacking vulnerability to the exe folder.
  • The created package file cancell extraction when detecting tampering with self file.
    When the package has been tampered with after the package creation, it is assumed that it is some sort of attack.

Safety is our top priority. Please report us if you find any problems related to vulnerability or safety caused by the design / implementation of this application.

We will plan to add some functions. ex) The function to disable vulnerable when packaging files that have vulnerable (such as installers).
