Loc file creator

Post by invader_zim » 05 Jun 2020, 21:56

Hi everyone,

Every time I had to create loc files I was annoyed that I had to do everything by hand. So one day I wrote a small console program that does it for me. But since the program was not really user-friendly I gave it an interface.

Maybe this is also interesting for you. The program is quite simple. Select the folder where the files are stored, enter the path to the webspace, select the desired files and click on Create. :thumbsup:

Very clever. Well done, I'm sure this creation of yours should get lots of use! :thumbsup:

BUT!!! my antivurus says it carries a couple of malicious bugs and deletes the .exe upon extraction. :o
1. MachineLearning/Anomalous.100%
2. Adware.DownloadAssistant.Generic

See info here: https://blog.malwarebytes.com/detection ... alous-100/
and here: https://blog.malwarebytes.com/detection ... t-generic/.

If there's a way to extract without the file being deleted (maybe by adding it to the 'safe' or 'exceptions' list, I guess this will work for people...

Cheers. :pil

Hi nighthawk,

wow that's strange :shock: I've written the tool with C# and used some external frameworks. But I think all of the frameworks are "clean". The tool has no upload or download function or something like that. I'm a little bit confused about the virus warning :?

I've checked the zip archiv online with "VirusTotal" and everything looks ok:

Hmm it's possible to add an exception to your virus scanner?

OK, thanks guys. I will work around it using safe list and check this tool out. I just thought you should know about the possible hazard, in case there was a problem.

invader_zim's idea is really cool anyway!

Cheers. :pil
