New version of mcreator appears to be a virus?
Wed, 05/27/2020 - 21:37

Windows defender prevented new version of mcreator from installing, and virustotal detected a virus in it? https://www.virustotal.com/gui/file/64c90cbd95b40317922fa78f32866a6aaf0f47176760bc2c80e76e125b00b163/detection is there any particular reason or is it perhaps a mistake?

It's fine, it only says that because it is a .exe file.

AV can do false positives. All releases get scanned with professional Kaspersky AV.

Windows Defender is EXTREMELY accusing. On my pc, it calls almost all exe files "harmful"  Even the badlion client exe. MCreator is safe and will always be.

DeadRaider you should bite your tounge, since anyone can easily put a virus in here that can’t be seen. For now, it’s safe though, but don’t assume it is, if it comes up positive on one virus scanner that’s not very good then run it on another

If anyone has trust issues, go to https://github.com/MCreator/MCreator and build MCreator yourself from the source.

Keep in mind all binaries for MCreator are scanned with enterprise-grade paid antivirus software I pay solely for the purpose of MCreator.
