There are no known virus's

There are no known virus's associated with minecraft. If there were, there would be a lot less people playing.

I am putting all of the skins i make here

there are no viruses in minecraft man
the only way of a virus is that a minecraft player is infected with it and the virus goes trough the internet to your PC
just install a good anti virus software (Add-Aware AVGfree) and its fine

Maybe she just made that up

Maybe she just made that up because she wants you to go play outside and she thought you would believe it. If you have only one computer she might not want you hogging it for minecraft.

1. Where do you get your

1. Where do you get your information from? Your mom is not a valid source unless she helped program the virus into Minecraft.

2. If you would be so kind to explain to me why my anti-virus software still runs perfectly after installing Minecraft, I would be very interested.

Your mom is one of those

Your mom is one of those special people who needs to be given as little access to computers as possible. They were never meant to attempt to learn these devices.

@Rofl FalafelNotch does not

@Rofl Falafel

Notch does not own WoM. WoM is third party. And why would we be in trouble? I'm sorry, but you're not making sense.

Also the virus is hidden so any virus detecting stuff will not detect it unless you use a hidden objects search

for fun, i ran a Malwarebytes scan, an Avast scan and a Spybot S&D scan (while minecraft was running)

they all came up negative.

Virustotal.com

Virustotal.com is your best friend, scans with pretty much all the anti-virus programs you can think of, and guess what? Minecraft came up clean!

I'm assuming you're Rofl Falalfel's mother.

The site is giving you a false positive now stop insulting our staff and threatening to sue Notch. "Minecraft has a virus thats implanted into java and it turns off anti virus stuff" you sure sound like you know what you're talking about (sarcasm). It has never crossed anyones mind that minecraft could contain a virus, no one believes you and your ranting will never make anyone question minecrafts security. If you would go ahead and look at the top of the screen you'll notice over 50,000 people have registered on WoM's servers... if you read the front page you'll notice the WoM community has been around and playing minecraft for over a year now, if you look at minecraft's statistics you'll notice over 340,000 people have registered and you believe you're the first person to notice this virus. Please do not post here about this again, you're making yourself look like a fool and pushing other more important topics off the "Active forum topics" list.
