RayRay459 has asked for the wisdom of the Perl Monks concerning the following question:

(Win32)I have a script that will update local administrator passwords on remote machines in a domain. There is a problem with security though as it is done through, what i believe is plain text. I had an idea, not sure how feasable it is, or if even pearlish, but an idea. Maybe copy out and encrypted file/script and then use another script to call it and execute it. That way a secure local copy is run on the machine and then it will delete itself. Is there a perl way to do this???? Thanks in advance. Ray
