VIRUS IN TWO PLAYER SERVER?
I was on a two player server with a friend when we both got a popup on the in-game browser playing some weird 50 second video titled something like "pomf.cat" I don't remember of tv color lines then street footage then it made us autotype things like "RETRIBUTION 2017" we both panicked and immediately quit the game and uninstalled it and now I'm doing a system restore and praying. I had audio off. Luckily after we quit nothing else happened to either of us. Is this a virus? Is it happening to anyone else? What can I do?

Why didn't you scan with your antivirus? :bbtcat:

Anyway, just chill bro. Maybe it was just a popup that just opened another popup. No need to run wild like a cow being slowly stabbed to death in agony. :calm_creep:

I'm just extremely paranoid lol. I hope wiping my comp works just as well. This is the first time that's happened to me. We were using play X then this video file comes up on browser ( not on playx) completely out of nowhere and controlled what we typed in chat sooo it might be more complex than that lol

You have a backdoored addon, unsubscribe from your recently subscribed/updated addons.

Good grief, is this real or is someone just trying to keep the drama going after loser.team did literally nothing for their very specific day for 2016? They already lost, seems really stupid for them to just try again with 2017, especially after getting busted countless times.

Oh man, this problem is still going on. Try deleting the addons that are suspicous. If you see any addon suspicous, send it to me and I'll look.

Haha you are joking right? I thought idiot.team stopped after the 25th of nothing facade

What the ♥♥♥♥ is this loser/idiot.team stuff...omg pleasssee explain because I have never heard of this until now. Am I screwed? Is it indeed some backdoored addon? A trojan??? Please help ;-;

I'm completely out of the loop. The only suspicious-ish addon I have is the drugs mod which I uninstalled, and hasn't given me trouble before. I'll just get rid of all of them and send the ones I really want to keep or something. Or, like, just not play gmod anymore because I'm a weenie.
Thanks everyone for your replies ♡

It's just a backdoored addon... Find it and remove it.
Ezekiel Jan 15, 2017 @ 8:54pm 
Alright, thank you. I now have 2 questions. How do I find it/know if an addon is infected? (I'm an absolute casual) And if I play using Hamachi servers will I be safe?

cheater.team, a group of bozos who thought they could get away with threats to do something on Christmas in addons with badly obfuscated backdoors. They ended up getting a mouthful from everyone on Facepunch and inevitably busted for being morons. In the end, nothing happened on Christmas. If they seriously think they can continue this nonsense without looking like a bunch of complete morons, then they must be awfully ambitious.

It could also be someone else who's bored trying to copy them. I don't know. It could also be this newly established thing called somalia.team which just looks like a total joke.

1. Always check who uploaded the addon and when they uploaded it

2. who even uses hamachi anymore you're safe as long as you didn't download any more backdoored addons
