    Why a file could be dirty?

    I don't want to get into specifics, but when we release hacks, there is an inherent risk that somebody will try to steal our property. To protect ourselves from this we do something called obfuscating. This messes up the file so it can't be read, much like 52 pickup.

    Since your antivirus, whatever it may be, usually cannot read an obfuscated file, it marks it as a virus. So please, if the hack comes from a reliable source, and it has been approved then you can probably trust it. If the person has an active account, they have been with the forum for a while, then why are you so intent on exclaiming that your antivirus can't read something it ins't supposed to read. By posting:

    This no work and has virus. you bad person jajaja
    please close this has a virus
    you only make yourself look like an idiot.


    I'm not saying download with careless abandon, just do a little research about what you're downloading before you do, or before you post.

    Anyways, support developers and all

    I encrypt all my text strings and addresses and obfuscate it and I stream the hack through a byte array. And it comes out 2/43

    But there are still retards here that still don't trust an active user and an approved attachment.

    Actually most anti-viruses don't mark obfuscating as a virus, not even so much packing anymore. You also forget about all the dickheads that try to release viruses on MPGH. While yes, you have a point to people shouldn't go around saying "virus", if it's dirty theres a chance its a virus. Not everyone is a "good guy"

    I have no idea what half of that meant, but it sounded pretty bad ass.

    McAfee is also known to have issues detecting viruses and maleware, which is one of the reason why I got rid of it two years ago.

    You want to know the final line of how it was soooo bad?

    "MALEWARE HAVE BEEN DETECTED!"

    "Fucking hell..okay.. "

    "WHAT WOULD YOU LIKE ME TO DO? DELETE? QUARANTINE? FIX ISSUE?

    "Um.. lets try.. DELETE?"

    "SORRY, I CAN'T DO THAT!"

    "What the fuck?"

    "Okay.. um.."

    "How about QURANTINE?"

    "SORRY! Can't do that one."

    "What the hell? Are you fucking kidding me?"

    "Fine.. how about.. the last one."

    "Sorry, but the file is in use."

    "NO FUCKING SHIT!"
