    angry Any new/good private server that does not contain trojan/virus?

    As the title says...

    I've downloaded at least 10 private servers to play, and all of them contain trojans. Please, don't tell me it is a false positive, any heuristic and zero-day trojan is not false positive.

    Any private server without a trojan?

    Thanks

    That happens with different encryption tools.

    It depends on the tool and the settings.

    You should try using different tools with different settings and check the results using virustotal

    Perhaps there are some clients with trojan/virus, but most of them have that problem with the tools.

    It's a shame that there are so many infected files out there. You probably have to inspect and build the sources yourself, if you want to be sure by 100%.
    For example, I gave up on searching for a clean 0.97d client, because every exe I found contains something according to virustotal

    If you want a 100% open source server, you might have a look at my project (link in signature) - it's not feature complete yet, though.
    I also released suitable season 6 client files here, which are 100% clean and not extended by modders.

    Welcome to the MU World, where 90-95% of the players dont care about the false positive viruses, trust me dude, its mu files.. depends which servers u tried, most of them have something (if those servers are risky, how would ppl still be playing etc..? what are u afraid of) and if there's no virus then it will be rare.

    Be sure the trojan is not the client files but the 'launcher,updater or antihack etc' instead, cuz yes false positive still exists, and i dont like it either but if you have experience you know what you dealing with and what to trust or not.

    Good luck finding that super clean client of a server though :D

    It is indeed strange imo the main.exe most servers use could have a potential backdoor.



    A clean 97d unpacked main.exe: 1.43 mb in size




    The main.exe that most 97d servers use: 4.90 mb in size



    Four of the antivirus engines detect it as a Blackhole a popular backdoor malware.

    Most of the times are false positive because hooking into a main.exe from another DLL (which is what most client sources are doing now) can be interpreted as a virus behavior pattern. Modifying the memory of an of an app using external methods is considered as a pattern for backdoors and potential viruses.

    The pattern and a possible behavior is triggering most of the virus check engines and even anti-virus softwares. If you have the source code and you've compiled it and you know it's safe, that's a false positive from your perspective and a true positive from other people's perspective. Anything which is doing memory alteration and modifying during the init or runtime, it's considered a virus.

    I got it from https://www.mediafire.com/file/r7p7e...4-KOR.zip/file
    There was a client link but it got taken down and I'm waiting for the original upload to update the link these days.
