Protect minecraft acounts from token stealers - with a warning

Recommended Posts

Just a warning, like "HEY" if this mod shouldn't be touching your profile, then delete it, it's going to steal your account.

While scam creators could frame the virus as a profile switcher or something more related, it's less likely that a player will fall for a scam, and also include info if the mod sends the token or anywhere off of your machine.

It could help in a scenario where people cannot read java code and are unable to check it themselves.

 

Potential warning could say something like "Account security alert! The mod xxxxxxxx.jar is accessing your Minecraft profile's temporary login info (and sending it to something)"

Buttons would be

    "Ignore"                                                                                                                                                                                        "prevent the mod from loading"

with a checkbox                            "stop this warning from displaying again on the same mod"

 

functions

 Ignores the warning and continues          (checkbox) stops the warning from displaying on any mod                                    stops any mod with the same

                                                                                          with the same hash                                                                                 hash from loading ever and marks the

                                                                                                                                                                                                            hash somewhere safe to keep

 

I would like this change to be on common versions to play on if not all

(1.8, 1.9, 1.12, 1.16, 1.17, 1.18 etc)

You do realize that this is not something that's possible to detect on our end. Nore will this popup be helpful. By the time you see this message the bad code will of already been ran and your data will be gone. Do not download untrusted mods, especially do not download any mod from untrusted sources.

At the end of the day, it's on you to be diligent when you're on the internet.

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