jyep u right.
But on some programms like bots with hooking, packet editing etc. will throws some false positives on different virus tools.
The virus tools detect this as an evil acces of the bot to the gameprocess or what else. But there is no trojan etc on the programm its just the hack of the bot themself that gets detected.
But always, if u dont trust the programm or programmer dont use it!
The problem at such forums like this are the one post guys. i know u have start with u first post! But if the first post is a bot,hack or sth. like...hmm should i trust him? Do u lend a unknown person at the bus station money, because he said he will give it u back next time?
Another point is: why should someone share something without to earn money? For the good guys is it the honor and give the community something back. For the bad guys dont exit this question, because they put a trojan or anything else on the file, get u account or access on u pc and earn money with that!
I hope this gives some thoughts to not so well known usern too!
