[SOLVED] Virus in the Forge natives


Recommended Posts

Today, I downloaded the Forge installer. I installed Forge, and some other mods. After playing Minecraft for a while, my antivirus program (F-Secure Internet Security 2013) popped up a warning window. I checked the details of the warning, and the path was pointing to C:\Users\****\AppData\Roaming\.minecraft\versions\Forge9.10.0.777\Forge9.10.0.777-natives-79696766257378\OpenAL32.dll. I cleaned the file with the antivirus program and started playing Minecraft. After Forge started up, the same warning popped up again (Forge downloaded it). So, my question is, does this file include a virus or not?







*** FILE: OpenAL32.dll, LOCATION: C:\Users\****\AppData\Roaming\.minecraft...., TYPE: Virus, NAME: Gen:Variant.Barys.994***

No it doesnt, that file actualyl has nothing to do with Forge itself. Thats the standard lwjgl natives that are used for all minecraft versions. And are downloaded from Mojang themselves.

I think this is just a cause of your AV being over zealous.

I do Forge for free, however the servers to run it arn't free, so anything is appreciated.
