Need help with checking if this is malware

Unread postby denis-z12 » August 11th, 2019, 4:52 pm

There is this game that I want to play badly. It is an old game and hard to find. Any copies I find on the internet seem infected with malware or they could be false positives since anti virus software tag them as malware.

In any case I dont want to risk it and install potential malware on my system.
Does anyone here inspect files if they are infected with malware and unsafe to use?

If you want to scan a file for malware prior to installing it, go to .... https://www.virustotal.com/gui/home/upload .... and upload the file for scanning.

It will be scanned by a number of different AV programs (currently about 65), and when complete the results of those scans will be displayed.

Thanks Gary R I have already done that. Some AV vectors detect the files but I dont know if they are false positives or actual malware.
That is why I though that there must be some users who can help me with that.

If you give me a link to your VirusTotal results I'll be happy to look them over and see what they tell.

It is no longer needed. I managed to find another source.
Thanks.
