Hi Guys…

I’m a newbie here:bow:. Found you looking for help. Protection ID seems to be what I needed. But, if you please, would appreciate a little “insight”.

  1. I found and downloaded v5.2c. Was able to open and run on a disk (to get the info). But I’m stuck after that I’m :confused: How do I apply what I’ve found?

  2. A new v6 is mentioned and shown here. Went to the “official” website, but the only download I could find was v5.2c:sad:. Is v6 at a different location?

Your insight would be appreciated :o…chugbug


#24

Welcome chigbug,

  1. Help can be found here.
  2. From my knowledge version 5.2c is the latest public version. Version 6 which is shown here is still in development so not public until it’s released.

[B]PID v6.0 Public XMAS BETA[/B]

   [B]<CDKiLLER & TippeX>[/B]

after 10 months of development,
we are proud to bring you this xmas gift.
the first public beta of the new v6 :slight_smile:

we tried our hardest to bring you a useful,powerful tool.
since development, this concept has mushroomed into v6
which now has a lot of extra functionality compared to v5.
this is the results of all our hard work… we hope you like it

BUT remember it still is a BETA and can contain bugs
(thou we gave our best to fix them all in this xmas build).

grab it from http://pid.gamecopyworld.com/ or use the update function within v5.2c.

(can the thread title be updated to v6.xx by a mod?, thx)


#26

Done :wink:

Just a heads up for the author:

After ignoring Protection_id.exe since forever (at least since April 2007 when I installed 5.2c), Norton AV suddenly started quarantining this .exe as of January 23rd.

Norton says it contains a Trojan Horse and directs to this page:
http://securityresponse.symantec.com/security_response/writeup.jsp?docid=2004-021914-2822-99

I downloaded and installed the V6 from your website and got the same response.

It appears that you have been blacklisted!!


#28

Never mind. Downloaded another copy and installed. Everything OK and NAV scans it OK. Sorry for the false alarm: I’m mystified. I’ve hit my system with several different AV, adware and malware scanners and can’t find anything that might have caused this (disclaimer - see my signature).


#29

we do actually check pid against typical anti virus programs before we release a new build to avoid issues such as those above…

however we do not test against norton anti virus, simply because its a piece of shit and raises many false positives on non malware/virused programs… i suggest you ditch norton and use a decent anti virus, you might also find your system is a bit faster…


#30

I need some help please. Is this what I want to download to find out what protection is on the game CD I want to burn? If it is and I download it , then what do I do> Sorry if this is the wrong place to post.


#31

Here is a tutorial how to use pid.


#32

So, once you’ve identified the protection can you defeat it and still copy the DVD? What I mean is can this software do this and what is the process?

Thanks!


#33

This depends on the used protection. When you found out which protection is used take a look at our CD Backup Guides and Tutorials for a method and use the search function if the same protection type or title has already been discussed here.


#34

I downloaded 5.2c and 6.00.
I know McAfee isn’t the best.
After scanning with McAfee, it found
New Malware.ag
in the v5.2c rar.
It found nothing in v6.00.

Any thoughts?

Thanks


#35

The 5.2c in my above post was downloaded from PID’s homepage.

I also downloaded ALL versions available on cdmediaworld.com.
According to McAfee, 5.2b and 5.2c from that site contained the New Malware.ag trojan.

Someone tell me these are false finds.

Thanks


#36

5.2c did indeed cause some false positives on some virus scanners
6.0 currently does NOT raise any anti virus warnings…

pid does NOT contain malware/spyware/trojans/antiviruses

and really, you should all upgrade to v6, its better, has a hell of a lot more in it and has a lot more signatures (so higher chance of detection)… v5 is redundant now…

we also make a point of scanning v6 releases using virustotal.com from now on…


#37

[B]faster, more accurate, still better and no more beta - ProtectionID v6.1.3 (build 26th dec 2008)[/B]

#38

Nice, thanks for the info.


#39

Avast Antivirus reports Win32:Pakes-BBX [Trojan] in v 6.13 xmas release :eek:


#40

false positive, it’ll be sorted out in the next build (~1 week or so), im pretty sure its one of the signatures causing it, problem is which one heh, 1 out of 350… needle in a damned haystack
