Windows Security Blocks UPX Compressed (packed) Binaries, (Fri, Aug 19th)

Nothing surprising, but a nice story for the weekend: I was experimenting with compiling some Python scripts to run them as native Windows programs this week. I used “pyinstaller” to convert the Python script into an executable. But I was a bit shocked by the large size of the binaries (ok. I should have expected that). So I attempted to compress them with UPX, which creates nice self-extracting binaries.
