Windows 7: HackTool.Patcher!kk7DphgQKUs (Trojan)

HackTool.Patcher!kk7DphgQKUs (Trojan)

I started to use a NoCD patch for Jedi Academy, that I got from GameCopyWorld, but my firewall popped the alert shown below. When I Googled for the name of the "malware", it found nothing by that title. Obviously, there are some that think that any kind of patcher is malware, but I do not. However, the parenthetical inclusion of the word Trojan caught my attention. If this were a true trojan, wouldn't Google have at least some returns on it?

HackTool.Patcher is a worm according to Bleeping computer.

Also references to Cracks and pirate bay.

So I don't know what it is.
I wouldn't touch it or the web site it came from.....but that is me.

I just took your suggestion, and the analysis record shows that 27 out of 43 AVs indicated that it is a trojan, by one name or another. I guess that should be sufficient to remove it, but somehow I still wonder, because it could be likened to the idea of whether a gun is evil or not. It would depend on who is holding it, and at whom he is pointing it.

Correct me if I'm wrong, but it seems that these AVs are merely IDing a program, and not how it is programmed...yes/no?

Hi SeekMeister,

I would exercise some caution. 27 out of 43 hits is significant enough to be a bit careful here.

Are you not better off avoiding the risk and playing the game with the CD, and leaving the NoCD Patch alone altogether?

If you send a message to Jacee or Corinne they might be able to offer a more experienced perspective.
