Default Malware Warning

Yet again Google has flagged Zophar's Domain as hosting malware.

Rest assured, none of the years, even decades old software on this site can harm your computer.

Unfortunately, a lot of old software nowadays gets identified as a virus even though it isn't one, or is so old that it wouldn't even matter if it was. All it takes is a few virus scanners to flag some piece of code it finds suspicious, and Google will flag a site and make it inaccessible.

The real victim is old software, because the only way to overcome being flagged as an infected site is to delete the file. Today's victim is the English version of nesterJ, an emulator last updated 13 years ago. Some virus scanners identify this as a virus, so Google flagged all the files on ZD as infected.

Aaaand, we should be clear. Until next time Google finds a 14 year old piece of "malware".

RHDN was having the same problem not to long ago and came up with a rather clever solution. You may wish to reach out to Nightcrawler for advice.

You may also wish to refer to the page below to see the discussion.

And yes, I was being a bit of a d-bag at first. Some things just irritate. And it's not really Google's fault. They really are just trying to make the net a safer place. Such efforts do have unfortunate side-effects however.
