    FZ does indeed save it by base64, they didn't obfuscate it for a long time.. and now, they're even stating the obfuscator in the file itself...

    This is a huge security hole, when dealing with RATs etc. Even with base64 encoding.

    There's a fork exactly for that, fzs.
    And it doesn't bother you to update when you're opening the damn thing to use it.

    @nbamaral worth looking into, cheers! (I only use it for quick uploads though)
