Post news RSS script viruses?

I just got a PM saying that the latest version of the mod contains a virus. I assure you, I checked it several times & there's no virus. The mod doesn't even contain executable code. It just contains scripts, def's, materials, etc. All text files, nothing executable except a bat

I just got a PM saying that the latest version of the mod contains a virus. I assure you, I checked it several times & there's no virus. The mod doesn't even contain executable code. It just contains scripts, def's, materials, etc. All text files, nothing executable except a bat file, which is text.

Just letting people know just in case.

Yes! there can be scripts that may be infected by a virus
Doom 3 executes the sscripts just like a compiler so its possible that mods can contain virus (Even gamecodes)
