    Or is someone ( tzuk_sandboxie) spamming tzuk's forum?
    Something doesn't look right over there.

    No, it's a hack. confirmed through the extracted files in the vm. Do you want to warn tzuk?

    Yeah, as the saying goes: "if it looks too good to be true, it probably isn't"

    Actually I caught it pretty close to the time it started.
    I'd post a warning message there, but that might be overstepping a bit, don't you agree?

    Couldn't hurt... I don't know if that patch was malicious or not (saw it and deleted it) but it's best to be safe.

    I'm not sure what to say about that. The warnings to tzuk should probably be enough to get the ball rolling. BTW page, I mentioned to him you found it and enquired about it here.

    I posted a brief warning over there.
    If I'm out of line, I'll apologize.
    But I think it's a scam and some unsuspecting people could get hosed.

    imo you've done the right thing :thumb: Absolutely I agree it's a scam and could hurt tzuk's business as well.

    This same thing happened a couple years ago, a hacked version of sandboxie was posted and the sandboxie forums were spammed for a couple of days. Some script-kiddie with nothing better to do and apparently a grudge against tzuk...:thumbd: :thumbd: :thumbd:

    It a shame really that this main one guy seems to have it in for Tzuk.

    There is an ongoing 2 page thread about this spammer here

    That spamkid really has some twisted idea of fun.
    As in the famous words of 'Big Gay Al': "We should all be tolerant, but not with these fu**ing people! They really are fa**ots!"

    With the help of some trustworthy SBIE forum members, the issue could be redeemed pretty quick though.

    Cheers
