pity  OMC stopped. I loved you could choose from so many different mods. Relhax is getting a lot of virus and windows warnings.

Any other mod packs that allow you to select from a lot of different mods?

Full of virus and malwares....don't use this if you want to keep ur computer safe...!

The Relhax modPack is SAFE ! The your scanner messages correctly.

 

The OMC ModPack started 3 years ago with the same Virus Messages at the beginning -> normal message behavior from the Anti-Virus-Industrie ...

 

But for comparison to ASLAIN and the other ModPacks (based on INNO-Setup with custom code):
RelHax is a complete Open-Source program and EVERYONE can check the code.

 

From this point of view:
ASLAIN ModPack (INNO-Setup based) is UNSAFE
RelHax ModPack Manager is SAFE

That is not right at all Grumpel....

 

Inno-Setup-Installer is able to DLL hijacking, BUT only if the original Author/Programmer WANTS TO hijack your PC.

I know Aslain for a very long time and also his work and files into the Installer.

 

Just for Info:

I am the ex-Supertester and ex-wargaming-modder "SchrottiGER". So some of you will know, that I have had a very deep look in every file after an update (Crash-Patch) of Wargaming.net, when Aslains-Team udate all single Mods.

 

Aslain have absolutly no interests to hack any of your Computer or other Datas. He enjoy it that you use his Mod-Pack-Composition and want that you have a lot of fun into the Game.

 

The early problem of anti-virus warnings come from the .ico file of the Aslain-Logo-Icon, or the Game .ico. So we try to comment out "SetupIconFile" line. In all cases the problem with antivirus with the problem of warnings about a malicious Program/file was solved with that in the early 2013 till today. 

 

Truth:  InnoSetup is vulnerable to being tricked into loading malicious UXTheme.dll (at least) inserted in the same directory as the installer is. But Aslain have buy the full and advanced premium Version, where the Security Datas was included, against this and other Hacks and attacks - to save his work, and your computers. (he pay it by his own wallet or Donations ^^)

 

I dont know and so I dont trust realhax....

Also I do not know the program of realhax and it does not interest me anymore. I hope for the users that his name is not synonymous for his program.


But ... I trust Grumpelhumpf, and if he declare its a clean installer, it will be (maybe) the truth.

But this is no reason to call "Aslains Mod-Pack" as a virus sling... - thats not fair and a lie.


cheers

He was not calling Aslains modpack a virus at all.

What he was doing was providing an alternative view on the subject, a comparison. He did not directly state anything as being a virus or malware.

The take away from his post is that the relhax modpack source code is 100% posted on github, so therefore anyone can see what it would execute on your system.

However, if you would like to get technical, the main reason why many antivirus applications are flagging Relhax as possible malware/virus  is because the code is not "officially signed". I do not have a signed publisher certificate, yet. This can be identified in any program actually, when you run it for the first time. When windows says, "would you like to run this application?", it shows the application filename, and the publisher. If there is no signed publisher certificate, it says something like "Unknown publisher", and that is where many anti-virus applications would raise an eyebrow. I am working on getting an Open-Source signed certificate for the application.

Again, Grumpelumpf was not calling Aslains modpack a virus, just stating a comparison between the two, based on an alternative view of the subject at hand.

I hope this alleviates some confusion.
