German PD security program from 1993.

Got something to hide?
178K discs full of "dodgy data"?
Scared of that 3AM knock at the door?

Then you need '"FINGER PRINT" !

This is a cool little program that does exactly what it says on the tin.
The address/contact detail files created are "scrambled" and so can't be read unless you use the original program to load and display them. Unfortunately Plus owners will just have to continue to "live in terror" as the program is not 6128 Plus compatible.

So in this video I load and List the 14K BASIC loader, but what you'll actually see in the video certainly isn't 14K worth of code - I'm guessing there are a lot of DATA statements there that are hidden in some fashion. I then try to Run the program but it locks.
So one soft reset later we get a look at the program and I create a dummy test file.
Finally I use the Goldmark utility VIEWTEXT to see if it can display the text in the test file.........nope!



Not emulated - original hardware and software.
Please note that  the aspect ratio for this video is 16:9 but the CPC monitor has
an aspect ratio of 4:3 so you may wish to adjust your viewing device accordingly.


Pretty interesting, this one!
