Malware in SM5.0.9
« on: August 21, 2015, 04:50:56 AM »
Hi guys! I played SM a long time ago, I decided to redownlaod on my new laptop about 3 days ago. I just ran my anti-virus and just now found some gnarly stuff (I use WebRoot)
In unistall.exe, Trogen.Dropper.Gen was found and in parallel_lights_iodll I found W32.Malware.Gen (im not sure exactly what these mean though...), Iv'e always loved SM but am so dissapointed now. How can this harm my computer? Should I unistall it? Has this effected others? Also I installed form the official site (oh god I hope)
 Sorry if I posted this in the wrong forum place...

SM definitely does NOT contain any malware or trojans. Maybe you're downloading from the wrong site? My antivirus has never given me any issues with SM.

I would say make an exception against it in your antivirus. IIRC, parallel_lights_io.dll is used for input/output functions like saving your profile and scores. If you downloaded it from the official website, nothing bad should happen. This isn't the first report of antiviruses incorrectly flagging SM files either, actually.

Is this virus good? I'm not good at it. I want to find a good fit
