    Re: XOR encryption using CString

    Where is the bound of the m_output string set and to what value?

    How do you know that m_display has at least m_masterkey.GetLength() chars?

    m_output = "";
    for (int i = 0; i < m_masterkey.GetLength() && i < m_display.GetLength(); i++)
         m_output += m_display.GetAt(i) ^ m_masterkey.GetAt(i);
