I recently got a permanent ban because of this!
I downloaded a fake resource pack of which I didn't know it was fake, and a virus uploaded a resource pack containing a virus via my account.

RESEARCH BEFORE YOU DOWNLOAD SUSPICIOUS RESOURCE PACKS!

Its just hard to believe, I mean yeah I've seen Paril going 'round on the forums, but not much otherwise. Now Cyprezz? I'm unsure. [Not on the deleting part, the screenshot part] I have yet to see something Cyprezz has talked on..

Cyp doesn't mingle with us mere mortals. Especially on something like this. He already dealt with it. If he says Borrops uploaded a virus, then Borrops uploaded a virus. If Midnight says it was Cyp's screenshot, then it was. I have yet to see a mod lie on PMC and I don't think they are going to start. Especially not about a virus. It's done.

Wasn't saying anyone was lying, just saying that its a bit hard to believe.

Sorry if my anger seemed directed at you. I did not mean it in that sense, at all.

Not uploading resource packs.

It opened your chrome/ie/firefox/whatever
It went to planetminecraft
It moved to the "Submission" part.
It added a description, a download, a title, a picture and all.
ON PLANETMINECRAFT.



I've already mentioned the difficulty a developer would have in forcing his way through an upload. Plus, he would know its gonna be gone soon. Not worth his time.

I have also been infected by the same thing but on a server website. [Storyline] I joined this cool server and was doing pretty well untill my base got raided *sigh* I asked the owner is he could do a backup but he said only if i downloaded the server program/app as a noob i was i downloaded it and opened the ClickMe.exe thing and it diddnt do anything untill it started posting random threads on my minecraftfourm account like fake texturepacks with the ClickMe.exe in the .zip file same with mods. So I dont know how to accessed my googlechrome to view my passwords and login to my minecraftfourm account but :/ Also it created this "Mod" Called No-Lag mod 1.4.7 (thats when it happend) it surprisingly got over 50 downloads i feel very sad for them poor people :l

Anyone who made this would quite clearly know that planetminecraft was going to get it removed.
My guess is this "virus" did the exact same "thing" unless if you're a complete fake-out and its money fraud or whatever.

What still doesn't make sense to me is why you think that someone would upload a virus that just "makes other people upload it". If I was someone distributing viruses, I'd just steal your banking information or something.


If so, it would be a bot network or something

As a resource pack creator I can tell you that they should definitely NOT contain exe's. If you are unsure about an executable file, don't execute it, scan it with an antivirus program then delete it with ccleaner if the antivirus can't.

Perhaps you can appeal the ban as it was an honest mistake, email the admins directly.

Lastly, be careful on the internet, use common sense.

I just re-read your OP and realized my mistake about uploading something you didn't create.

What still doesn't make sense to me is why you think that someone would upload a virus that just "makes other people upload it". If I was someone distributing viruses, I'd just steal your banking information or something.

Also, if your computer is infected with something that would do this, which I doubt, why would we unban you and risk the distribution of more malicious content?

Yup, because clearly something that has the word 'Injector' into something as simple as a resource pack isn't going to send a virus through to your computer

I have dealt with viruses.
I have dealt with lots of viruses.
I have dealt with 100's of viruses.
I have never ever ever seen a virus that logs in and posts something, using such an extensive process as PMC's uploading process (no offense Cyp/Paril, but it isn't "easy"). Its not a text box you just add text into.... Seems a bit much for somebody to go through all that trouble just to mess with PMC, especially when they know how quickly PMC deals with it.

I also have no clue how someone could access my PMC account and upload something like that, but I still hope you believe me! First look at this: http://i.imgur.com/UcxzCXc.png
And then look at the stuff I posted.
It's not even the same style! And why would I use a Steve skin to take screenshots of it?

If you have been protected from the exe (which btw, never open anymore) then it wont have activated the virus and thus you would have had to put the pack on pmc yourself.
