Explore any Flash (SWF) applet with this free decompiler

SwfScan is a simple free SWF decompiler from HP's Web Security Research Group.

Just open your chosen applet and it'll immediately be decompiled, allowing you to browse its code. If this is lengthy, then a search tool (with regular expression support) will help you to locate the details you need. Or you can export the code to a text file for analysis later.

SwfScan can also uncover a few security vulnerabilities in your source code. Just click the Analyze button, then select an option in the Vulnerabilities list for an explanation of the problem.

And the program also scans for URL's within the code, which may be handy if (for instance) an applet is streaming a video and you'd like to download a local copy for yourself.

Please note, though, SwfScan doesn't offer any form of resource extraction. Your target applet may have videos, images, icons and audio files built in, but SwfScan won't allow you to remove these.


SwfScan is a basic but straightforward SWF decompiler with some useful extras.

WhatsApp Messenger 2.12.12

Free Full Commercial Software

WhatsApp Messenger is the world's most popular instant messaging app for smartphones.

You can use it to send and receive text and voice messages, photos, videos, even call your friends in other countries, and because it uses your phone's internet connection it might not cost you anything at all (depending on whether you'll pay data charges).

It's easy to set up and use. There's no need to create and remember new account names or pins because it works with your phone number, and uses your regular address book to find and connect you with friends who use WhatsApp already.

You can talk one-to-one or in group chats, and because you're always logged in there's no way to miss messages. Even if your phone is turned off, WhatsApp will save your messages and display them as soon as you're back online.

There's plenty more (location sharing, contact exchange, message broadcasting) and the app is free for a year, currently $0.99/ year afterwards.

Version 2.12.12 brings:

• Links that you share or receive will now include a rich preview. When sending a link, you have the option to not include a rich preview.
• Additional 3D Touch features: You can now quickly Peek and Pop chats.
• Redesigned Settings tab. 
• You can now view all your starred messages across all your chats in Settings — Starred Messages.
