When looking on how to decode IonCube, several ideas come to mind (before you launch into YouTube to DIY it, you should know it's very hard).
At Decrypt we do admit that IonCube seems have made the process complicated, but not impossible to figure out.
At Decrypt we're all about making things simple and easily accessible. In fact, we sometimes halt the release of new modules for that very reason.
However, when you're looking on how to decode IonCube, you must consider the complexities of the IonCube encoder itself, and what it does exactly (this requires some knowledge of C and other languages). So isn't it simpler just to use an already existing service?
