Win32 API Constants why so much virus detections

Recommended Posts

I discovered the tool "Win32 API Constants" from GaryFrost today, downloaded it and...

tada Windows-Defender ( which never protected me from anything ) deleted it immediately.

Virustotal discovers a unusual big bundle of trojans and malware.



Im sure this is a wrong diagnosis. But why so  hard and why no source is shared.

The default in the Beta and next release is NOT to use upx - so you could well be the boss and not realise it! :D

:) lol

I meant remove the option altogether though, I don't really see the point of it except to have files flagged constantly by the AV plonkers.

There is still some point to it, like if want a quick script for an embedded system with limited space, but I know what you're saying. Disabled by default is definately better, the file size isn't that big to start with and there's less false flagging. Makes things easier to share

Maybe there's some other compression out there we could use instead?
