    It definitely is fake, however it is not a virus. It's just a text file with the .exe extension.
    Also, I removed it and if you ever find more of these things just PM staff about it as there's no other way to report it as far as I'm aware.

    I don't know if they can make a report button
    The download section is powered by D2-Downloads System 2.0, a mod for IPB

    A Report function in the DL section would be a really good idea.
    What do you think about it Costy?

    I think either admin or Narin can removed stuff from the downloads.

    Report buttons are for lazy people who like to reduce the amount of buttons they hit on the keyboard.

    No need for a report button just send a mod or admin a link and explain the reason.

    It seems to seldom happen anyway, a lot of good people here I don't think anyone wants to pollute the download section.

    Well, Mag Staff is actually a specific kind of mod and has powers in the News-sections.

    Just looked and it turns out that we can delete and edit too and I guess the regular mods can seeing they are higher then the mag staff.
