I have an installable programme which contains large amounts of name/address data in raw files which I want to extract. The information is held in some custom format and the data is encrypted in some way.
The program accepts as input things like name, address then does a lookup on the data and returns the results in HTML format.
I need the raw data so I can put it into a database and do my own queries on it.
You will need to be skilled at reverse engineering techniques. Whether you disassemble code or try to reverse engineer things from the raw data does not mater to me. As long as you can extract all the data.
This is a job for someone with experience of patching software. If you have experience in assembler this will probably help/may be necessary.
It’s VERY important you understand that if you start this job and cannot complete it I cannot pay anything. This is an all or nothing job. I either will get the data I need or not at all.
I will supply the CD in ISO downloadable format to the winner. You are free to have a look at it and cancel the job within 12 hours if you don’t feel you can do it. This is not a problem.
IMPORTANT - This is NOT commercial software you are being asked to work on. We have bought the CD with the data. We simply want more convenient access to it than provided with the inbuilt user interface.
