    My friend recently gave me a game on a disc called Gta: vice city (ripped + dipped) which was downloaded from the internet. So I decided to install it but Avast home came up with these four alert during installation:

    12/12/2008 3:25:15 PM 1229048715 SYSTEM 1420 Sign of "Win32:Trojan-gen {Other}" has been found in "C:\Documents and Settings\Administrator\Desktop\GTA Vice City\GTA -ViceCity- rip maxgrab\PC_GTA -ViceCity- (ripped+dipped).exe\[Embedded_I#0028cd4]" file.
    12/12/2008 3:31:20 PM 1229049080 SYSTEM 1420 Sign of "Win32:Trojan-gen {Other}" has been found in "C:\Documents and Settings\Administrator\Desktop\GTA Vice City\GTA -ViceCity- rip maxgrab\PC_GTA -ViceCity- (ripped+dipped).exe\[Embedded_I#0028cd4]" file.

    12/12/2008 3:39:40 PM 1229049580 SYSTEM 1420 Sign of "Win32:Trojan-gen {Other}" has been found in "C:\Documents and Settings\Administrator\Desktop\GTA Vice City\GTA -ViceCity- rip maxgrab\install.exe" file.

    So I decided not to install it and I asked my friend whether there is a virus in this game and he said ''no'' and told me to ''disable the anti-virus''.
    Uploaded one of the files to virustotal and only 6 scanners detected something:
    AVG - Generic4.VVX
    ClamAV - PUA.Packed.UPack
    eSafe - Win32.Looked.gen
    Panda - Suspicious file
    Prevx1 - Suspicious
    Webwasher-Gateway - Win32.Malware.gen!80 (suspicious)

    So is this game safe to install or noto_O?

    Anything which has been ripped is likely to be infected, so install the game at your peril. Better yet, why not simply buy a legal copy without all the headaches

    I will buy a legal copy of the game just to be on the safe side, you never know what these ripped programs/games contain;)
