Downloads & Plays any version of Minecraft, too.
« on: October 03, 2013, 04:09:11 PM »
Cracked Minecraft Client

With due respect to Kaise and to others and just for curiousity I've been browsing the web for Minecraft Clients and found a cracked one in TPB.

It can download & install previous versions of Minecraft and it is designed to install future versions of Minecraft. Very easy to use.
It is a torrent so you need to have a downloader like uTorrent, Vuze, etc.

Download Link:
Minecraft Forge with Optifine

Hi rimrimat,

I downloaded the file without warnings/problems from ESET NOD32 Antivirus / MS Security Essentials.
I did notice a couple of things which i'll explain below:


After opening the zip archive i noticed the contents of a pre-installed cracked Minecraft, as it had some in-game screenshots, and client logs which are made when you launch the game.
(with this information you can state that the person whom uploaded it didn't bother about cleaning up his gamefiles ;-) )

Also, when navigating to .minecraft\versions\ i noticed a modded 1.6.2 jar,
whereas the filename of the zip states: Minecraft 1.6.4 Cracked with OptiFine & MiniMap :P

When i checked the exe file's properties however, i noticed a mention of simpleMC.net, so i visited that site.
Unfortunately i couldn't download the client there because you had to sign-up first and validate (or pay) using a Credit Card, in order to download the program...

I still wasn't sure if i could trust the exe so i did some googling on simpleMC and it found some results of torrents on TPB with the same cracked client, BUT those were all packaged differently i.e. they had a readme and a much bigger setup file.

The problem with these kind of things is that most of the time you don't know if you have the original files or ones someone has tampered with and perhaps added a backdoor/RAT or whatever.
With this said i'm not assuming that the client u've referred to shouldn't be trusted, but i would advise everyone to scan the contents (exe) on www.virustotal.com , www.jotti.org , http://www.virscan.org/ to make sure those don't come up with any virus reports (i haven't done this yet, but will soon).

When i noticed that the contents were differing from the other torrents i found, i felt the urge to notify/warn you people about my findings.

I'll now continue scanning the files and if everything looks OK i'll install this under a virtual machine with no internet.
Will report back ASAP and if everything turns out to be good, i'll edit/update my post accordingly.


EDIT:

(here are the scan-results)

- 0/48 @ https://www.virustotal.com/nl/file/aba66ed3edaa07aef4734c548480f27832fa816c486f95c40dd234f6d2bede6b/analysis/1380807659/

- 0/22  @ http://virusscan.jotti.org/en/scanresult/33b692fc730ec1578524dac23d41a8287c6cbeff

- 0/37 @ http://r.virscan.org/report/8e01b4d2281025b77029fd37d6ec2964.html


Now lets hope it's not a FUD (Fully UnDetectable) virus, because those exist as well
(FUD basically means that there is no known signature/pattern to detect/identify it as a virus, with or without heuristics enabled)

Thanks for your time/patience reading all this, and rimrimat too if the files appear to be clean! (which they do, atleast for now) :)



another EDIT: i actually gave up on this because i don't find it worth the effort to spend more time on something of which its obvious it has been tampered with.

If i find the time i'll verify http://thepiratebay.sx/torrent/8966587/  It has a setup and the files were uploaded by someone named simpleMC

When I clicked the button that says force clean, it updated to 1.6.4. when I selected the 1.6.4_forge on the selection bar, it downloaded optifine. It seems ok  for me for now because im using it,  but it sometimes hangs.  Don't know if it's the java (i have the latest version though) or the client. It seems it does need some more testing, and scanning for viruses. Well, time to hunt more of these clients. Minecraft addiction, huh! Oh i also noticed the screenshots... :D

I'd say this is probably safe, Just modified. FUD Viruses don't generally stay FUD for very long.

Remember, Most clients will update to 1.6.4 or downgrade to prior versions, Uncluding mine. You just need to select 1.6.4 as a profile in the launcher :)

Yay... TPB is illegal in Netherlands (Well, i think in whole Europe)...
Lucky, i got proxies/VPNs :3

But... Just use copycraft, you can get all versions with just a few clicks and you can get a skin/cape :D

AND!!!! TPB is sometimes full of viruses (SOMETIMES!!! not always)

Just so you know, you can always just go to a websites IP because those can't always be blocked. Just go to http://194.71.107.80/ and you won't need proxies or anything :)
