Microsoft .NET offers an efficient framework for developing and deploying Windows applications such as Web 2.0 server or client-side applications. However, it also uses Microsoft intermediate language (MSIL) or Common Intermediate language (CIL) which contains highly detailed metadata that makes compiled applications easy to reverse engineer, tamper and pirate. Once Microsoft .NET applications are deployed, hackers and competitors have easy access to the source code and the embedded IP within the applications themselves.
