Mojang is legally not allowed to release a program that could damage your computer. Therefore there are a few possibilities. One you installed a mod which contained a virus because you got it off no no legitimate or knock-off cite, in this case you should probally just reinstall minecraft and clear your jar file. Two you are using a hack/ bit-torrented client and you should either reinstall the acutal Mojang copy-write minecraft or uninstall your fake copy and go out and buy the real client from Mojang.

Please note that I am not trying to accuse you or anyone else of hacking or using a hacked and/or torrented client.

2zacky was being very rational, and it is correct Mojang can not legally give you a virus directly. Calm down and try what he suggests, it may work.

FIrst of all, are u port fowarded? If yes then did u interact with anyone suspicious either from our server or anothe minecraft server? Zacky is right, Mojang cannot and would not legally placea virus so unless u pirated minecraft or used an illegimate account, minecraft isnt the reason unless ur ports are open. Idk how to check but if they are, someone probably cybergate RAT'ed you.

I know the virus you are talking about. DO NOT, I repeat DO NOT send the 200 dollars. It is a fake virus sent out to lock you out of your PC, claiming to be the FBI. It asks for 200 dollars to be payed to unlock your computer. Don't worry, you didn't do anything wrong, it's fake. There is a way to get rid of it though! If you still have the problem I can help.

OK, my turn.

As (some) of you know, I have an understanding of how viruses work.

I am quite familiar with scams such as "$200 threat" and "You has virus plz install this program". I hope you are not stupid enough to even go as far as clicking on them.

Regardless, what you have is a virus bound to an .exe, in this case Minecraft. Any virus that is bound to an .exe has devastating potential and has been associated with spyware and trojans, such as RATS and keyloggers. (As some of you know, I am quite familiar with these)

You got this from downloading an illegitimate Minecraft, not the one from Mojang. And if you really think that Mojang is attacking its patrons, you must have some sort of mental disorder, because Notch is currently richer than God.

SOLUTION: You passwords to EVERYTHING can be stolen at any given time.

You have two choice:

1. Reinstall operating system <----(Always best)

2. Be a cheap ass and go to www.avg.com and download free virus protection. Then run the scan.

Live and Learn, gentlemen.
