What's up with the trojan in Hook64

Postby Dimimiss » 4:14 pm, Tue Sep 08, 2020

I tried running the games (ESO,FFXIV,POE) with Hook64 with no success. That's when i discovered that the Loader.h64 is infected with malicious Trojan.

Trojan:Win32/Wacatac.D4!ml

Care anyone to explain WHY will it have such a thing in the program?

It's a false positive. If your antivirus is flagging that then you're using a bad Antivirus and should change to a different one, either that or update its definitions.

Thanks Sorien. I am using the up to date Windows Defender. It is safe to allow it right?

Yep, I can guarantee there's no virus in it now nor has there ever been.

If you're still bothered, run it through https://www.virustotal.com and it will come up negative under Microsoft. It may come up as "malicious" or red on some crappier scanners but that's normal since it's an injector and they obviously don't differentiate between malicious and non-malicious. The exe isn't even packed/protected.
