I havent used hake in perhaps a year, im wondering what has changed. The change log still hasn't been public so... What did change?
I'm posting this again:*changelog: +trojan
In addition, we modified our software protection in our last update. One of our protection methods is probably commonly used by malware, and anti-viruses have generic/heuristic detections for this. It does not indicate a detection of any actual malware.It's safe. The methods that game cheats and malware use are just very closely related to eachother. They do many of the same things in terms of avoiding detection (code mutation), execution of arbitrary code payloads (downloading/streaming the cheat when logging in), code injection, etc...
Here's an old post that @kawaii wrote going into more detail: https://hake.me/forums/threads/kis-2016-client-beta-exe-virus.3395/#post-16431
Lets talk about what the distributor client does and why it may be flagged by some anti virus programs as being malicious. First, the client.exe is downloaded by another program, HakeDownloader.exe, which can be considered suspicious. HakeDownloader.exe mutates client.exe so that every user has a unique copy of client.exe. We do this so that if one person gets detected hopefully everyone else does not. Client.exe is also encrypted which commonly sets off anti virus programs. Client.exe generates a Hardware ID based on your machines components, and injects the actual hack into the game, both of which are suspicious from the anti viruses perspective.
I think I've said this before a long time ago but we count on customer loyalty and trust to turn a profit. We do not want any of your information or to compromise our users in any way.
We have removed the detection. Please follow the steps below to clear cached detection and obtain the latest malware definitions.
1. Open command prompt as administrator and change directory to c:\Program Files\Windows Defender
2. Run “MpCmdRun.exe -removedefinitions -dynamicsignatures”
3. Run "MpCmdRun.exe -SignatureUpdate"
Alternatively, the latest definition is available for download here: https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/wdsi/definitions Thank you for contacting Microsoft.
