Trojan with temp fix

Post by Boni on Fri 26 May 2017, 00:02

I know you guys never have bad downloads but I want peace of mind before allowing it. My anti virus listed the temp fix for sims 4 game file as a trojan while still in the .rar package.

This is a false positive. Please exclude that file as well before extracting. You will not be able to run the game if your antivirus removes it.

False positive, it has something to do with VMprotect. It triggers AV because it can't read inside the protected file so they got flagged as generic trojan. I suppose I can't link my source, but I read this in another forum. The guy who released the crack and some others explained the issue. It's safe.

Thanks, guys. I realized after going to bed that it was probably flagged because of the dll files it contains.

My game won't open though Sad

Most probably because the crack was killed by your AV.

But I made sure all the dll files are still there. Removed them from the AV and exempted then from being taken down again. I also redownloaded the fix mentioned above so I don't know what can be broken.
