Okay, I downloaded the windows client and this software had a trojan horse detected.  I quickly removed it.  I am going to only use the Linux version.  But for windows users, download and install at your own risk. 

Make sure you don't install into the same computer you have your other valuable coins in.

Someone update the windows client and make sure no viruses in it.  Noobs are suffering.

Thanks for posting the proof Bonsai!!  Don't try to steal windows users account with your trojan.  I was planning on mining this but it seems quite sneaky of your coin to try to steal Window's users accounts.  Shame on you. 

Another scam!  I have you on my shit list now.

Im just wondering how many wallets get picked up as viruses....all lead to just being what virus detection programs do all the time... most times harmless.

Free SIGNs giving everyday. Be part, do not miss!.

On a side note, it's funny how people seem to assume that Linux or source code distribution somehow is a guarantee against Trojans. Beware, this may be exploited.

It doesn't have a virus, though it is a shitty promotional altcoin.

Just stating the facts with what I encountered.  I suggest you clean out the virus before uploading it again for distribution.  We don't pay good money for Virus Scanners like Kaspersky and MCFee to ignore their warnings.

"False positive" means there is no virus. It is reporting a false detection. It is safe.

I get false positives all the time with programs that I have created, because the anti-virus software doesn't have enough info to know whether it is safe or not, and so it trashes programs that I WRITE BY MY OWN HAND, which guarantees there isn't a virus in it, even though it says it does.

While I appreciate your vigilance (there really needs to be more people like you on the internet, actually. It would stop phishers in their tracks), you do need to learn anti-virus vocabulary, and learn to trust people who have as much to lose as you do when they say there is nothing wrong.

Did I help you today, or just like my style? Toss a couple coins my direction!

Just replace the two files that are being tagged, libcurl-4.dll and pthreadGC2.dll, and then all is clean.

A simple google search will get you both files from a dll-files website.  But, again, you should also test those files.

I replaced both files and ran the phenixcoin-qt with no problem.

I was going to replace the files and zip it up to post, but hey, why trust a file I post up.

Your choice, as I said those files should also be tested.

I myself, used the files I found that had no "hits" with scanners, than the ones that did "hit".  Simple choice for me.
