re. Repurposed software: Apps gone rogue
I will start by saying that I am not a programmer, I am an artist. But sometimes someone can look at a situation from another angle and be of help. I was wondering if there could be a way of closing an app from any changes. In some programs you can lock the document from any changes. If something like this could be done for all the code in a program, to lock the code from changes, (like putting a sandwish in a zip-lock and closing it), and, IF someone was able to unlock and get inside to the program's code itself, there was a tracker mechanism that would show the IP address of the one who broke the program's locked barrier. The IP address would be similar to that ink inside a bag of money stolen from a Brink's truck or a bank, and the ink would show who the thief is. Perhaps what I am saying does not make sense or could not be done. But just thought I would offer up the idea for consideration.
