latest update regarding Rakion game (mad by Softnyx)

included a malicious .dll

entitiesMP.dll

Thanks to virustotal.com i found this:

-

AntiVir 7.1.1.14 09.07.2006 TR/RKit.Delf.B.6

AVG 386 09.07.2006 BackDoor.Generic3.KYW

Fortinet 2.77.0.0 09.07.2006 W32/Delf.B!tr.rkit

F-Prot4 4.2.1.29 09.07.2006 W32/Backdoor.gen

Kaspersky 4.0.2.24 09.07.2006 Rootkit.Win32.Delf.b

Panda 9.0.0.4 09.07.2006 Suspicious file

this dll hides two process from the tasklist:

rakion.bin

gameguard.des

and whoknows what else it does...

is this a good way to avoid trainers or game hacks?

Softnyx company keeps answer their customers it is a BUG of our antivirus program and suggest us to unistall the AV!

We need someone authoritative force them to use this unethical tools!

Please join us

I think...first..is ethical to hide processes running on a computer to his owner ?

If softnyx can...than everyone else can!

and in second time.. is it ethical to deploy this kind of update without warning the users?...or better...suggesting users to remove their own antivirus softwares??

wait for your opinions
