Is it safe?

Recommended Posts

Is Autoit Safe? is pretty generic... Depends on what you define as "safe".

If you are asking if it is 100% secure, then no, no scripting language is. Could you elaborate more on what you mean by safe?

Is it safe to use? Is there any trojans or any kind of virus inside the exe? Sorry to be rude, but I want to have know before downloading anything.

The download from this website is, yes. But if you are trying to download a random .exe from somewhere else, then maybe? maybe not?

Ummm, if you have no means to scan binaries against known signatures before installing them, I would certainly recommend doing that first. 

Not that we are not all trustworthy people, but you are asking users if the product is safe.  You might want that attestation from a trusted 3rd party, and not randos on a forum.

Yes, the downlaod link from this website. Alright, thanks. I tried to google the program about viruses but got no honest answer so I chose to come here and ask. 

Thank you for helping me

Don't you think this is simply a stupid question? You are asking the mugger whether he's dangerous.

So you expect the honest answer here? :idiot:

Do you seriously think you'd get an answer that would satisfy any criteria? You're asking the people that use it if it's safe, which is a pretty stupid question to ask users of a product. Especially if we had an ulterior motive to get you to download the software so we could own your computer.


If I posted any code, assume that code was written using the latest release version unless stated otherwise. Also, if it doesn't work on XP I can't help with that because I don't have access to XP, and I'm not going to.

You can always up the file to an online tool like VirusTotal, which barring a local AV would be a reasonable step.

Yes, actually I do, I think most people are honest and trustworthy so I gave it a chance, not everyone but most of us are :)

Just watch false flags that will occur due to how some of the binaries are packed.  In my usage, if the number of engines that pop isn't double digits, it's probably benign.

And we applaud your security mindset, but we also do it in a sarcastic and berating manner.  We will apologize for that repeatedly during your stay here :)

I don't think asking here is a stupid idea. I think it's a pretty good idea. 

A lot of new players will see that nobody got a trojan before nor any kind of virus from downloading your program.

 

If anyone had a virus or trojan before from your program then they could write it here and tell me.

But I don't expect that to happen since I believe that your program is safe, I just want to have different point of views.
