In cryptography, encryption is the process of encoding messages or information in such a way that only authorized parties can read it. Encryption does not of itself prevent interception, but denies the message content to the interceptor. In an encryption scheme, the message or information, referred to as plaintext, is encrypted using an encryption algorithm, generating ciphertext that can only be read if decrypted.

What can you do with our bash script?

Encrypt text, decrypt text (only with this script!) or send an encrypted text by e-mail using your SMTP settings.

There are two options: standard encryption and passphrase encryption.

Starting the script: if the archive is decompressed on your Desktop =>1. open Terminal 2. cd /root/Desktop 3. ./zeuscencryptedmessage.sh or double click the script then click run in Terminal.

If you can’t start the script or you get “permission denied“, right click the script -> click properties -> click Permissions -> select “Allow executing file as program” or directly in the command line, type: chmod +x nameofthescript.sh

Note! If you have a 32bit Linux operating system, you will get cannot execute binary file error.
