So I am finding it very odd that I can go to bitcointalk and try to download a miner (usually from a Google Doc link or from a known illicit ‘mega’ file sharing site (who’s original owner was arrested for child pornography) and end up with my AV giving me alert after alert yet when I find the developers GitHub page I get a nice clean download with no alerts.
Are these not the exact same miners? Shouldn’t it be the exact same version of the program if it the real developer posting it? How could one site give me viral alerts for what should be the exact same file that the GitHub site is a clean, worry free DL?
I do think there is something amiss here and mounting evidence seems to grow to show facts behind my query. This I only post for others to consider and ponder when choosing what miner to use and what source to download their miner from. There is honestly only one real explanation and it has nothing to do with a .bat file or whatever other excuse has been accepted for this.
Facts are facts and the facts point to a reality that worries me for some good people who have downloaded something that may not be so good to them in the long run.
