xx Virus in JustBasic?
« Thread started on: Apr 15th, 2015, 4:06pm »

I'm considering installing JB and while doing my due diligence discovered comments that the program contained a virus. This is on the Cnet.Download site. Now the comments are a few years old, so it's probably been fixed, but I'd like confirmation. And perhaps it's a good idea to refute these comments?

Ever heard of Virus Total?
Might as well check.

But really, this software is old (and actively used by this community). So if something was fixed it was some false positive.

A: Go ahead. I had my share of good then I coded it for fun, if you can make better use of it - please do.

In short, it is perfectly safe to download and install Just BASIC from the link at the top of this forum.
