The Gman Virus (what is it)
It's called the gman Virus. It has been spreading for quite some time. I wrote a giant thing about it on some forums.
The Scary G-Man Virus is a Supposed Lua Coded Virus, That if you download the wrong Addon, or go on an Infected server. you will get this G-Man virus.

What it does,

It Takes over your screen with a Map Texture, that has 2 gman faces put together, Which you can easily find in some Map Textures. So, as i was saying. It takes over your screen, and Makes a long Screech. If you clikc Quit, it says "HAHAHHAHAHAHHAHAHA NO" And, If you Alt+F4/Ctrl+Alt+Del it says "NOPE, YOU'RE IN THE PITS OF HELL NOW LOL".

It then opens up Internet Explorer since there is no Ad Block, And Opening Tabs randomly. which have Virus filled things, and Virus Ad's. It also downloads a Video called "Jews" which is a ♥♥♥ Porn video, That Automaticlly opens when downloaded. And it installs a Virus each Video, They say it downloads around 20 times. The Virus Run through your Gmod Folders, Eventually through your whole computer. and Ruining it, As many Threads on facepunch.com, of people complaining about this "Scary Gman Virus"

Have it? Here is how you remove it

*Quote from Facepunch*
"Delete garrysmod/garrysmod/cache and garrysmod/garrysmod/cfg

The virus is there

And if you want to feel safe,delete garrysmod/garrysmod/lua.

They all regenerate when you reboot GMod.

Also,download the GMod Beta SVN. Search it and you'll find some forums on it. "

Ways you can Avoid it

Here's how to avoid being infected by any viruses GMod viruses:
-Avoid joining random servers or atleast don't join the obviously infected ones, If the servers name is something like "Chr1saster's ♥♥♥♥ hole" or "gayry is ♥♥♥!" then you probably shouldn't join it.
-Don't download random lua files off the web.
-Don't download lua hacks off the web.
-Don't ♥♥♥♥ with the rogue admins.
-Don't install scripts that your friends or "friends" have sent you.
-Inspect regulary the contents of your gmod folder and the contents of the files in there.
-If there is no Picture for an addon, Check it's contents. before downloading,

I'm guessing this is like an urban legend type of thing....the entire thing just sounds like one.

Don't feed the troll, guys. This is obviously fake. It would have to entirely rewrite Garry's Mod in order for it to do what he says it does.

Edit: If this is a real virus, then why have I never heard of it?

Also a LUA virus spread inside Garry's Mod cannot affect anything outside of Garry's Mod. That bit is correct, but I highly doubt this is real anyway.

Its Basicly A LUA Code that is not a virus at all but it attemps to open websites that have viruses and porn videos and tries to download them.If you have a good fire wall it can easialy block it

Wow, that's a pretty intense virus to get from a mod. I wouldn't have never imagined.

ThePerplexer Jan 10, 2014 @ 6:42pm 
Do you know what severs is it on or what addons that have it if its real?
Hatsarefun12 Jan 10, 2014 @ 6:42pm 
also what is the mod
Tower™ Jan 10, 2014 @ 6:44pm 
scary!
The picture is true, because that's how the face model is made, it has to start on a 2-D plane before being converted to 3D to actually model the textures.
CTRL + ALT + Delete and any other key specific computer commands are all system critical, on top of that the contents that holds that data is in a folder seperate from Garry's Mod (Big BIG surprise) so the only way it could lock you out of those key commands is if the "virus" spread outside of the folder, which means deleting the Garry's Mod lua folder like the "solution" states wouldn't really solve the problem. It'd create more since Lua is fairly essential to run the whole thing as it has the coding for everything. Lua errors are common anyway, as apparent for the achievement for it, this is obviously a fake one.
Hatsarefun12 Jan 10, 2014 @ 6:48pm 
ok but what is the mods name
Hatsarefun12 Jan 10, 2014 @ 6:55pm
