    UPX is described as '(Ultimate Packer for eXecutables) achieves an excellent compression ratio and offers very fast decompression. Your executables suffer no memory overhead or other drawbacks for most of the formats supported, because of in-place decompression' and is an app in the File Management category.

      ExEinfo PE vs UPX opinions
      pros, cons and recent comments
      Exeinfo PE detects the type of packer/compiler etc. used by an executable, but UPX actually "packs" the executable.

      Themida vs UPX opinions
      pros, cons and recent comments
      The main purpose (and intention) of upx is to compress files. The main purpose (and intention) of themida is to obfuscate files and to unnecessarily add a few MB (bloatware).
