Trojan on Sims 4??

Post by tsukkiii on Mon 12 Oct 2015, 04:08

I have downloaded many Sims 3 expansion packs from here, so I figured getting the Sims 4 from here was a good idea. After installing it through the odd wizard it came with, Norton came up with 2 notifications saying it had 2 trojan gens. That sorta freaked me out because I trusted this site!! 

I am now running 2 scans to make sure nothing got past Norton, but I am very ashamed in the uploaders of that torrent. Like seriously?? 2 trojans??? I'm still gonna play the game because im p sure Norton removed the trojans, but still. bad move bro.  Why. Why. Why.

Hi there, @tsukkiii.

You won't be able to play the game at all, because what Norton did was remove the crack after detecting it as a false-positive. I already explained here:
http://games4theworld.bestgoo.com/t21311-the-sims-4-ultimate-fix-major-issue-possible-virus-in-current-version#144080

Our downloads always have been safe, and we make our best to make sure that they continue to be so. There's no 'trojans' in any of the files for The Sims 4, just a generic virus detection because of the behavior of the dynamic library included.

Welcome to the forum,


What SeoY said before basically. I myself also wrote a comment about this on the G4TW Facebook page, back then, and which pretty much sums up everything there is to say on this matter (although from a technical point of view, this post is very simplified, the basic message is still true):

https://www.facebook.com/110924105707074/photos/a.150507375082080.31826.110924105707074/634325583366921/?type=1


And from a purely pragmatic (!) viewpoint, consider the following: you could also try Sims 4 releases from other uploaders than Games4theworld if you don't trust us here, but I doubt that you will get a different result in your Norton. Everybody uses the same Sims 4 release that was cracked from RELOADED, nowadays.
